What is RAPT:

RAPT is a 2D analysis and design program developed in Australia, its simple and user friendly environment made it a popular program for design of RC and Post Tensioned Concrete Slabs. It is used at both tendering (concept design) and detailed design stage. So regardless of where you work, a consulting firm or a PT sub contractor,  RAPT skill would be considered as one of the crucial skills which will help you fast track your career.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand multiple structural load paths used in suspended slabs and required RAPT runs in a given plan
  • Learn how to create Slab and Beam runs using RAPT, define various inputs from geometry to design parameters
  • Analysis the RAPT outputs and what is critical to check and ensure code requirements for a structural element

Course Outline:

  • Slab Structural Load Path:
    –    One-way & Two-Way Slabs, Beams,
    –   Intro to Strong Band, Strut-Tie, Columns
    –   Examples of Structural Load Path Various One-Way and Two-Way Slabs
  • Create Slab Runs in RAPT:
    –   Define Slab/Support geometry
    –   Define Design Parameters
    –   Calculate Required Tendons and Model them
    –   Understand RAPT outputs and how to read results
  • Create Beam runs using RAPT:

RAPT is a commonly used structural engineering software in the Australian market and no training course had been provided before. I got very practical and deep knowledge of RAPT and PT system through this course. The course was very well explained and I strongly recommend this course to the Structural Engineers interested in PT system.
