Design of Concrete Structures


Concrete structures (CS) are designed so that they can satisfy requirements regarding safety, serviceability, durability and aesthetics throughout their design service life. Study of design of Concrete structures is most important part for Civil Engineers.

NPTEL provides a good bank of knowledge in this subject for Technical Students.

The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), a project funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), provides e-learning through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Sciences, Technology, Management and Humanities. This is a joint initiative by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore. Other selected premier institutions also act as Associate Partner Institutions.

NPTEL is a curriculum building exercise and is directed towards providing learning materials in science and engineering by adhering to the syllabi of All India Council for Technical Education  and the slightly modified curricula of major affiliating Universities. It has developed curriculum based video courses and web-based e-courses targeting students and faculty of institutions offering UG engineering programs.

Here we provide the link from NPTEL where you can find some useful notes of design of Concrete Structures.
