Part 1: Introduction for beginner civil engineers in manual calculation of structural elements

Manual calculation of :

1-  Slab thickness ( How we can determine manually the thickness of all types of slabs: waffles slabs type 1 and type 2,  Ribbed slabs, Solid Slabs , and Flat Slabs + Show the properties advantages and disadvantages of these slabs)

2- Beams thickness interior and exterior beams in all types of slabs and how we can choose the optimized design of Slab- beams system

Part 2: Learn the basics commands in AutoCAD to be ready to the shop drawing practice ( How to draw lines, How to draw polyline, Copy, Move, How to draw X-line, How to draw circle, How to draw Hatch in AutoCAD, How to do match properties in AutoCAD, How to print a sheet in AutoCAD.

Part 3:  Students will learn how begin the shop drawing of a civil engineering project in the following steps:

1- How to draw the structural Axes

2- How to distribute the columns

3- How the draw the Column’s details and Column’s elevation.

4- How to draw the reinforcement of the columns + table.

5- How to draw the slabs layout and reinforcement.

6- How to draw the beams layout and reinforcement.

7- How to draw the details of beams and sections.

8- How to draw the draw the foundations layout.

9- How to draw the sections of the foundations.

10- How to draw the reinforcement of the foundations.
