CEE5302 Behavior of Concrete

The goal of the course is to learn behavior of concrete on the basis of concrete constituents, and chemical and physical mechanisms of concrete. In addition, recent concrete technologies are addressed, which result in the improvement of concrete performance at the material and/or structural levels.

CEE7301 Constitutive Modeling of Concrete Members

The goal of the course is to understand nonlinear structural behavior of reinforced concrete, which includes compressive response of concrete structure, tensile response of structural concrete, response of 2D continuum, and nonlinear concrete fracture. In addition, the course addresses nonlinear computational methods to analyze nonlinear structural responses.

CEE7306 Numerical Analysis for Civil Engineering

The goal of the course is to learn basic numerical methods, which are widely utilized in graduate level research in civil engineering. Topics of the course include approximation and computer arithmetic, system of linear equations, linear least squares, eigenvalue problems, nonlinear equations, optimization, interpolation, numerical quadrature, initial value problems, boundary value problems, and partial differential equations.

Undergraduate Courses

CEE2102 Computer Aided Engineering

The goal of the course is to learn computing methods for a wide range of engineering applications. In computer lab sessions, students get hands-on practice with Matlab. Topics of the course include data structures, basic algorithms, numerical methods in solving differential equations, programing techniques, etc. Additionally, the course requires developing a program related to civil engineering applications, as a term project.

CEE3303 Applied Mechanics

Basic principles are developed on the basis of equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. The course will cover mechanical properties of materials, axial load, torsion, bending, transverse shear, stress-strain transformation, deflection of beam, and buckling of column.

CEE3402 Reinforced Concrete Structures

The goal of the course is to understand fundamental mechanisms and design principles of reinforced concrete (RC) structures so that students are able to easily adapt to changes in design methods. Topics of the course include behavior of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual RC members for bending, shear and torsion. Additionally, the course requires to design a concrete structure, as a term project.

CEE3410 Design of Concrete Structures

The main objective of the course is to understand fundamental design concepts of reinforced concrete (RC) and prestressed concrete (PSC) structures. Topics of the course include design principles of concrete members, bonding and development length of reinforcing bars, behavior of compression members, and concepts of prestressed concrete. In addition, students are exposed to design practice, as a term project.

CEE4401 Construction Material Laboratory

The goal of the course is to understand behaviors of three major materials in civil engineering, which are concrete, metal and geotechnical materials. Behaviors of each material will be covered by specialized faculty members. This course provides opportunities for students to be exposed to laboratory experiences. Especially for concrete, the course material will cover the sieve analysis, moisture content, mixing design, behavior of mortar, behavior of fresh concrete, and behavior of hardened concrete.
