Begins by emphasizing the investigation of reinforced concrete structures and continues by studying various types of foundation systems, such as footings, and retaining and bearing walls. Also includes a general overview of indeterminate structures and the behavior of continuous beams. Concludes with the study of lateral forces and dynamic loading, and their impact on the design of seismic and wind-resistant structures. May be offered on an intermittent basis.
