Teaching language: NO
(NO=norsk, EN=Engelsk)
Teaching exam periods:
Autumn parallel
Course frequency: Annually
First time: 2015H
Preferential right:
Course contents:
Course main content is structural engineering.Concrete as construction material, reinforcement, dimensioning of short columns, sizing of beams and plates, pressure reinforcement of beams, T-sections, shear reinforcement in beams, torque and axial force, MN diagram of column cross section. Calculation of deflection, crack width, shrinkage and creep, minimum reinforcement, reinforcement rules (location of reinforcement and concrete cover requirements), anchoring of reinforcement. Introduction to prestressed elements.
Learning outcome:
After completing the course, students will be able to calculate structural parts in concrete. Students will also have received an introduction to the design of prefabricated concrete and prestressed concrete. Students will learn to understand the theory of how concrete works in structural system. Students should understand how to use the rules of the Europen Standard for dimensioning structures so that they meet the requirements for Ultimate Limited State (ULT) and Service Limited State (SLS) . Students will become familiar with the content of the eurokode2 NS EN1992-1-1 Design of concrete structures and use this to calculate the structures. Students should understand the importance of proper sizing and joining of structural parts for safety, function, reliability, aesthetics and economics (material and time consumption by the construction, durability / maintenance).
Learning activities:
The learning process is divided between lectures and exercises. Exercises are an important part of the learning methodology and reflects not only lectures, but should in itself provide learning. There is allocated time for rehearsal hours with guidance.

The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidate¿s exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
Allowed examination aids: Calculator handed out, other aids as specified
Examination details: One written exam: A - E / Ikke bestått
