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 acquired in lectures to a specific project that students also work with in other courses as part of their studies.


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.

11. Engineering structures.

12. Principle of prestressed concrete design - basic terminology.

13. Introduction to bridge design - basic terminology.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Introduction to the projects - selection of individual assignments for the whole semester.

2. Specification of materials for the structure.

3. Consultation of structural schemes.

4. Notes on reinforcement drawings. Analysis of the view of the reinforced floor slab.

5. Presentation 1 of structural schemes with material specification of individual load bearing elements.

6. The calculation method of the slab.

7. Design of reinforcement in a selected part of the slab.

8. Presentation 2 of the analysis of the slab and the design of reinforcement in the selected part.

9. Check of the bearing capacity of the selected wall and reinforcement design above the opening. Design of reinforced concrete staircase and assumed structural scheme.

10. Presentation 3 - wall with opening.

11. Presentation 4 - staircase of the building with focus on static scheme, construction procedure and reinforcement design.

12. Design of foundation under selected column or wall.

13. Final presentation 5 of the project - the design of the foundation of the building and comparison of the variant without reinforcement and with reinforcement including economic aspects.

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to deepen students' knowledge in the field of design of concrete and masonry structures as a whole in relation to the previous course. Due to the focus of the program, emphasis is given to working with design documentation and understanding structural drawings.
