Course Name: 

Design of RCC Structures (CV251)






Programme Core (PC)

Credits (L-T-P): 



Strength properties and behaviour of concrete and reinforcing steel. Basic principles of working stress design. Limit state design concepts. Designing of members subjected to flexure, shear, torsion, axial forces and combinations, uniaxial and biaxial bending of columns. Design of simply supported and continuous beams and slabs; two-way slabs, isolated and combined footings. Computation of deflection and crack width.

Course Outcomes:
1. The students will be well aware of the basic design philosophies of Working Stress Design and Limit State Design of RCC Structures.
2. The students will be able to design RCC beams –Singly and doubly reinforced rectangular beams, Flanged beams, based on specifications in IS 456-2000.
3. The students will be able to design one- and two-way slabs; continuous beams and slabs, based on specifications in IS 456-2000.
4. The students will be able to design RCC columns – Axially loaded columns, Short columns under axial load and moments, Slender columns, based on specifications in IS 456-2000
