specific prerequisites for this course

Final attainment levels and final capabilities of this course content: 'Biotechnology', 'Ferroconcrete' and 'Strength of materials and Stability'.

- The student has insight into the principle of prestressed concrete and the different prestressing techniques and is able to formulate, explain and analyse units and techniques. The student also knows the practical application domains. (ME1, ME2).
- The student is able to explain, determine and formulate the basic hypotheses, principles, concepts and working method of a design- and verification calculation of a prestressed girder for a determined load of a simple bend. (ME1, ME2, MBK-K3)
- The student is able to define, formulate, explain and translate the basic hypotheses, principles, concepts and working methods of the treated calculation methods for slabs in ferroconcrete to the appropriate reinforcement. (ME1, ME2, ME3, ME4, MBK-K3).
- The student uses a correct language, masters the taught jargon and is able to set up a calculation note. (MT1)
- The student is able to execute a partial or whole design- and verification calculation of an isostatic imposed beam for different loads of a simple bend on an independent basis. In order to do this, the student is able to correctly execute the necessary calculations and uses the course's theory and exercises. (ME1, ME2, ME3, ME4, MBK-K3).
- The student is able to execute a manual calculation of a simple rectangular slab in ferroconcrete on an independent basis, supported by an orthogonal beam grid, taking into account the calculation methods seen in the course. The student is able to execute the calculation and to critically assess the results. (ME2, ME3, MR3).
- The student has insight into and is able to use the program Diamonds. ME1
