Course Description
The course deals with the entire field of the customary reinforced concrete design with the exception of some highly
specialized and unusual structures (such as the shell concrete). Complete designs of a few common structures are
discussed to furnish a vehicle for bringing together all the fundamental theories involved. Emphasis is given to a
thorough discussion of basic structural performance, fundamental mechanics, and physical explanation.

Grading System
The student’s grade for the course is computed based on both formative and summative assessment data. The
computation is detailed below.
Grade Component Weight Computation
Homeworks, Quiz (HQ) (10%) HPA Grade x 0.10
Pre-Midterm Exam (PMEx) (22.5%) PMEx Grade x 0.225
Midterm Exam (MEx) (22.5%) MEx Grade x 0.225
Pre-Final Exam (PFEx) (22.5%) PFEx Grade x 0.225
Final Exam (FEx) (22.5%) FEx Grade x 0.225
Total 1.0
Passing Grade: 3.0
