100 Ultimate Load Method
  • Brief introduction to fundamentals of ultimate strength theory: curved stress distribution, compressive stress block, simplified rectangular stress block as per Whitney’s approach, ultimate moment of resistance of singly reinforced section and doubly reinforced sections
200 Limit State Method
  • Introduction to limit state method of design as per IS 456 (latest edition): concepts of probability and reliability, characteristic loads, characteristic strength, partial safety factors for loads and materials, introduction to various limit states.
300 Limit State of Collapse – Flexure
  • Limit state of collapse in flexure, shear and Limit state of serviceability in deflection and cracking, design of singly and doubly reinforced rectangular and T sections for flexure, design of members in shear and bond, design of beam subjected to bending and torsion.
  • Requirements governing reinforcement detailing.
400 Design of Slabs
