Class Objectives
/Class Outline
The objective of this class is to understand the systems of seismic design of buildings, especially, the structural design method based on the Inelastic displacement concept in reinforced concrete structures are focused on in this course. Students should be able to understand seismic design procedure and to conduct structural design of buildings. Followings are objectives.
(1) Understand design concept.
(2) Understand design method for bending moment, axial load, shear force. 
Class Schedule lesson1 Prescriptive vs. Performance Specifications
lesson2 Background and outline of inelastic displacement concept
lesson3 Materials and strength/ Concrete and steel
lesson4 Principle of structural planning/ Beam, column and shear wall
lesson5 Method of design/ Loads and their combinations
lesson6 Method of design/ Limit state, confinement
lesson7 Design of member for flexural and axial force/ Ultimate strength
lesson8 Design of member for flexural and axial force/ Plastic hinge, lateral reinforcement
lesson9 Design of member for flexural and axial force/ Analysis of section
lesson10 Shear strength of member/ Shear resistant mechanism
lesson11 Shear strength of member/ Truss and arch mechanism
lesson12 Shear strength of member/ Shear strength of joint
lesson13 Shear strength of member/ Ultimate shear strength when bond failure occurs
lesson14 Seismic performance of non-structural members / waist wall, sagging wall, cubic wall
lesson15 Seismic performance of non-structural members / partition wall, finishing material
