COURSE CONTENTS

  1. Structural framing of concrete framed-structure under seismic loading and structural design criteria.
  2. Computer aided analysis of super RCC framed-structure under seismic loading using ETABS or SAP (i.e. accuracy of geometry, loading, and soft-ware calculations with manual values e.g. base shear etc; analysis of moment, shear, and torsion of structural members).
  3. Computer aided design of super RCC framed-structure under seismic loading using ETABS or SAP (i.e. seismic design of structural members).
  4. Computer aided analysis of sub-structure under seismic loading using SAFE (i.e. accuracy of geometry and loading; analysis of moment and shear).
  5. Computer aided design of sub-structure under seismic loading using SAFE (i.e. seismic design of foundation).
  6. Structural drawing in Auto Cad.
  7. Design report/document for vetting (i.e. soft and hard design report including all relevant drawings).
  8. Structural framing of a real-world multistory building (Complex design problem).
