Prerequisites:

The student has to own the knowledge about mathematics and physics, with particular reference to the differential and integral calculus, matrix analysis, geometry of the masses, mechanics of solids, rigid bodies and dynamic analysis.
The student has also to own the knowledge of the science of construction, with particular reference to analysis of the continuous, the theory of beams, De Saint Venant problem, resistance criteria, constitutive laws and instability of the equilibrium.
The student should then be able to solve exercises related to the topics mentioned above: calculation of derivatives and integrals, matrices, study of systems of linear equations, study and calculation of the kinematics and dynamics of systems of point masses and rigid bodies, calculation of isostatic beams and statically indeterminate beams. 
Target skills and knowledge:

At the end of the course the student will know the basics of structural design with particular reference to safety structural limit states, structural behavior of reinforced concrete elements, verifications at ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state, first elements of structural dynamics and seismic design, design of steel structures.
The student will be able to calculate simple static schemes of twodimensional structures (typically beam systems in the plane) and to perform basic safety verifications imposed by the code.
The student will also be able to perform a simplified seismic analysis. 
Examination methods:

Exam methods will be announced soon.
