3 Credits
This course focuses on the fundamental concepts of prestressed concrete design. Topics include prestressing systems, types of prestressing, materials used in prestressed concrete, analysis and design of pre- and post-tensioned systems, design of connections, losses in prestress. Emphasis is given on the use of the current industry standards and a design project.
CVET-210
3 Credits
An introduction to the analysis of static structures covering free-body diagrams, forces, moments, vectors, equilibrium, friction, and analysis of structures and truss members. Applications are drawn from civil engineering technology.
CVET-432
3 Credits
Design of members and frames of reinforced concrete. Topics include principles of structural design; properties of concrete and reinforcement; design of slabs, beams, columns, and footings; and introduction to pre-stressed concrete. Emphasis is on the use of the ACI code, and a comprehensive group design project is assigned. Some computer work is involved.
CVET-332
4 Credits
Introduction of classical and modern computational techniques to analyze statically determinate and indeterminate structures. Topics include beams, 2D trusses, 2D frames, cables and arches, moving loads and influence lines, approximate methods and moment distribution. Computer-aided structural analysis using commercial structural analysis software STAAD is involved.
CVET-230
3 Credits
Applications of the principles of statics and strength of materials to the analysis and design of basic structural elements in buildings such as beams, T-beams, columns, slabs, and footings. Topics include analysis of gravity loads in buildings, along with analysis and design of both structural steel and reinforced concrete members found in buildings. The Allowable Stress Design approach (AISC) is used for steel, while the ACI code is used for concrete. Design and analysis of steel connections are covered also.
CVET-220
4 Credits
Study how forces and moments affect axial, shearing, and bending stresses and deflections of structural members. The relationships between stress and strain, for both axial and torsional loading, are explored. Beams, shafts, and columns are analyzed and designed based on stress and deformation. Combined stress states are analyzed, including using Mohr's circle. Statically indeterminate problems are evaluated. Euler's equations and column design principles are studied and applied.
CVET-436
3 Credits
This course focuses on the fundamental concepts of structural design with masonry elements. Topics include historical perspective of masonry technology, materials used in masonry construction, general design requirements for masonry, structural design of unreinforced and reinforced masonry elements, masonry construction practices, repairs and improvements to masonry walls. Emphasis is given on the use of the building codes for masonry structures and a comprehensive group design project.
