K. C. Hover.

Centered on the design of a multi-story building that is initially planned with masonry bearing walls and precast-prestressed concrete floors.  In the next phase the precast concrete is replaced with cast-in-place reinforced concrete. Finally, masonry bearing walls are replaced with a reinforced concrete framing system. The course explores gravity loads, wind loads, and earthquake loads, and the behavior of individual members and the structure as a whole.

Outcome 1: Learn how to develop loads and structures from planned use and from service environment.

Outcome 2: Learn how loads move through building systems.

Outcome 3: Understand the use and origin of standard building codes and specifications.

Outcome 4: Experience the fiscal value of time by keeping track of all time spent on design project and submitting bi-weekly invoices to the client.

Outcome 5: Gain experience with working in teams.
