Hybrid construction mixes precast and in-situ. The first hybrid buildings started to appear in the 1960s. Now the biggest use of precast concrete is in hybrid buildings. Precast concrete is rarely covered at undergraduate level. This course aims to remedy that. The design code used is The Design code used is the SS EN 1992 series of Concrete Structures. Often, the full precast solution, namely precast beams, slabs, columns and walls, may be felt to be inappropriate for a particular building project. Luckily, it is not necessary to use precast frames in conjunction with individual precast elements; the benefits of precast (speed, quality and prestressing) and in-situ (cheap and robust) can be availed-of by combining the two. The combination of precast and in-situ concrete is termed 'hybrid' to distinguish it from 'composite' which usually implies steel plus in-situ concrete.. It usually involves either precast vertical structure and in-situ horizontal structure, or in-situ vertical and precast horizontal.

The course explains how to design pretensioned prestressed elements suitable for hybrid (precast + insitu) concrete construction.

 This is a half day course with a given extended worked example of a double-tee long span floor with in-situ topping
