Structural concrete IIIa

Within the lecture “Structural Concrete IIIa”, topics from the basic courses are continued and deepened. The calculation of internal forces with non-linear and time-dependent material behavior is shown. A closer look at serviceability deals with topics like deformations, restraints and minimum reinforcement. The application area and construction of joints in building construction are shown. The design and construction of structural members such as flat slabs, ground slabs, deep foundations and waterproof concrete structures are discussed and completed with case studies of applications within civil engineering works.


  • Non-linear calculation methods
  • Time-dependent behavior of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures
  • Structural deformations
  • Limitation of crack widths
  • Joints in building structures
  • Flat slabs, waterproof concrete structures, ground slabs and deep foundations
  • Tank constructions
  • Design of office and high-rise buildings

Structural concrete IIIb: prestressed concrete

The lecture “Structural Concrete IIIb” discusses the load-bearing behavior of the composite construction material, prestressed concrete. The different prestressing and anchoring systems are presented, as well as the design and construction of prestressed concrete sections for all kind of loads.


  • Internal forces resulting from prestressing
  • Prestressing and anchoring systems
  • Pre- and post-tensioning
  • Construction materials, product quality control and initial testing
  • Creep and relaxation behavior
  • Determination of friction loss and prestressing forces
  • Grouting of tendons and relevance for protection against corrosion
  • Examinations within the area of transfer of the prestressing force
  • Load-bearing behavior in the ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state


The lectures are based on DIN EN 1992. A level of knowledge equivalent to the courses structural concrete I/II is recommended for this course.

The lecture schedule as well as the distributed documents and slides are available for registered users in the L2P-Portal.
