Syllabus
Prerequisites: For a real understanding of the course topics the following courses should have been taken: Building Science, Structural Engineering, and the Workshop of Architectural Restoration.
Target skills and knowledge: The student will be able to recognize the constructive techniques characterizing the xisting buildings, including monumental ones, to evaluate the properties of materials constituting the structural components, to address the analysis of failures due to both static and dynamic actions, to evaluate the structural performance of existing buildings using the most suitable methods, to design interventions for the improvement of the structural behavior, according to the current codes and reccommendations available at national and international level.
Examination methods: Written assignment (exercises of structural assessment and design of interventions) and test on topics learned during lessons.
Assessment criteria: Abilities of critical judgment, in communication and understanding of the topics taught in the classroom.
Ability to apply the gained knowledge to existing structures in Agreement with the current codes and reccommendations.
Course unit contents: Structural materials: masonry, wood, metals, primitive r.c. Conditions of use and mechanical properties.
Masonry structures: building typologies and static behavior of individual structural elements and complex organisms.
Structural design of wooden structural elements.
Behavioural mechanisms of vaulted structures.
Behavior of load-bearing masonry structures under seismic actions.
Seismic vulnerability analyses.
Methodologies for modeling and numerical analysis.
Safety evaluations and criteria for the selection of repair and reinforcement interventions.
Design and assessment of strengthened structural components (masonry and r.c.).
The structural engineering for the valorization of archaeological sites.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures.
Prectice exercises.
Informatic labs.
Technical seminars.
Technical visits.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes of the lessons and handouts.
Recommended texts.
