1. Reinforced concrete structure - preliminary design of dimensions, schematic shape of the structure, loading, load cases for an inner frame. 2. Calculation of inner forces in the frame. 3. Calculation of inner forces in the frame - continuation, load combinations. 4. Dimensioning of the ledge - bending moment. 5. Dimensioning of the ledge - shear forces (stirrups and/or bends). 6. Reinforcement curtailment. Correction. 7. Dimensioning of an inner column. 8. Static calculation and dimensioning of a footing under the inner column. 9. Reinforcement drawings of the ledge, footing and column. Correction. 10. Two-way slab - preliminary design, loading, inner forces, dimensioning - reinforcement proposal. 11. Reinforcing using wire meshes or bars. Scheme of reinforcement. 12. Final correction. 13. Submission of the project. Credits.
