RAK-33226 2019-01 1 - 2 Olli Kerokoski
Passed design exercises, numbers 5 and 6, seminar (weekly meetings) and exam. The exam may take place only after the exercises and the seminar have been approved.


The student can design the frame constructions of both reinforced concrete and precast concrete buildings after having completed the study module. In addition to the knowledge of the real behaviour of the structure, the student can apply the theory from the regulations and instructions of the standard EN 1992-1-1. In detail, the student identifies the significance of local compression, and construction joints at both the design stage and the construction stage. The student can also design the stiffening structures of precast buildings. Furthermore, he/she understands the stresses at joints as well as the principles of the behaviour of the joints. When it comes to the exercises, the student works as a member of a design group (or a pair) and a seminar group and therefore bears the responsibility for the success of the work. NOTICE: The details are yearly discussed and agreed with the students. So, the background of the students is regarded.
