Department of Concrete and Masonry Structures

The course lectures is focused on the design of one-way and two-way slabs, staircases, reinforcing walls, foundations, precast structures, halls and prestressed concrete. The course also covers masonry construction and an introduction to the design of civil engineering structures and bridges.

The content of the practicum is the application of the knowledge and skills on the real structures.


Handing in work in the form of a presentation at predetermined dates and scope (see Moodle).

Ongoing consultation of tasks.

Required participation in exercises, maximum of three excused absences.

Passing the exam with a minimum of 51% score.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Design of concrete structures. Types of concrete, concrete specifications.

2. Design of reinforced concrete slabs. One-way and two-way slabs.

3. Flat slabs. Punching.

4. Serviceability limit states - cracks, deformations (deflections). Concrete under short and long term loading. Shrinkage and creep, effective modulus of elasticity.

5. Masonry structures - principles of design and execution, terminology.

6. Multi-storey buildings - structural systems and arrangement of structural members. Stiffening of multi-storey buildings - stiffening elements.

7. Reinforced concrete staircases - principle of design, influence of execution technology and acoustic requirements on the design.

8. Precast and bonded precast concrete structures - design and design situations, implementation.

9. Special concretes - fibre concretes, UHPC, sustainable development, recycling.

10. Foundations, retaining and basement structures.
