CE1027 PREFABRICATED STRUCTURES 3 0 0 100


OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course the student shall be able to appreciate modular construction, industrialised construction and shall be able to design some of the prefabricated elements and also have the knowledge of the construction methods using these elements.

1. INTRODUCTION 9
Need for prefabrication – Principles – Materials – Modular coordination – Standarization –
Systems – Production – Transportation – Erection.


2. PREFABRICATED COMPONENTS 9
Behaviour of structural components – Large panel constructions – Construction of roof and floor slabs – Wall panels – Columns – Shear walls


3. DESIGN PRINCIPLES 9
Disuniting of structures- Design of cross section based on efficiency of material used – Problems in design because of joint flexibility – Allowance for joint deformation.

4. JOINT IN STRUCTURAL MEMBERS 9
Joints for different structural connections – Dimensions and detailing – Design of expansion joints

5. DESIGN FOR ABNORMAL LOADS 9
Progressive collapse – Code provisions – Equivalent design loads for considering abnormal effects such as earthquakes, cyclones, etc., - Importance of avoidance of progressive collapse.
