CVE20003 Design of Concrete Structures Analysis


1. The concrete structural elements will be subjected to a constantly increasing load as shown in thediagram. The load capacity is determined when the beam can no longer sustain the applied load. Your entry is to include a failure load for each of the three concrete elements tested.
2. Entry should contain detailed calculations clearly written. The use of concrete design software is not permitted. A single pdf file containing the calculations needs to be emailed with other information as outlined below.
3. First prize: The judging criteria is the predicted load capacity of the three concrete elements based on the aggregated formula outlined in the entry form. Calculations must be readable with the correct methodology.
4. The tests will be conducted by staff at Swinburne University’s Smart Structures Laboratory. Depending on COVID-19 restrictions, there may not be an audience this year, therefore the tests will be recorded with video and played back during a future webinar if we are unable to hold an inperson event.
