Untitled document
Upon successful completion of this course the students will be able to:
1.  Compare characteristics of different masonry materials and the results
of the manufacturing process in the production of different masonry
products.
2.  Evaluate attributes of masonry wall and roof construction systems and
apply the logic of masonry construction to the design of buildings.
3.  Evaluate attributes of heavy steel framing and apply the logic of
heavy steel framing to building frame design.
4.  Compare characteristics of different types of cement and concrete and
the requirements for placing concrete for building construction.
5.  Evaluate the attributes of one-way and two-way sitecast concrete
systems and apply the logic of one-way and two-way systems to building
framing design.
7.  Analyze the role of regular reinforcing and posttensioning in concrete
building systems.
8.  Evaluate the attributes of precast concrete systems and apply the
logic of precast concrete systems to building design.
9.  Analyze the role of cladding systems and sealant joints in cladding of
high-rise buildings.
