  Reinforced Concrete Structures-II Learning Schedule
Pre-requisites: Concrete Technology, Structure Analysis 3 1 0 4


Course contains learning of concept of working stress method and limit state method for various reinforced concrete sections. It includes concept of design of one way, two way and circular slabs, short column and long column, axially and eccentrically loaded columns. Students will understand the concept of footings and retaining wall design as well.


  1. The students will be made familiar with the design of Flat slab, Domes, beams, beams curved in plan, water tanks, bunker, silos, chimney etc.
  2. To enable the students to understand the various design philosophies of R.C.C. structures in practice.


On completion of this course, the students will be able to

  1. Design above mentioned R.C.C structures on their own.
  2. Use relevant BIS codes related to above mentioned R.C.C structures respectively.
