First semester

SSD ICAR/08

Credits 6

The objective of the course is to provide students with the principles and foundations of theory of elasticity

SSD ICAR/07

Credits 6

The aim of the course is to give knowledge of the criteria and methods of study of geotechnical systems and design of geotechnical works also in seismic areas, from the definition of the geotechnical model with the available investigation tools, to the definition and sizing of geotechnical works, (walls , bulkheads, foundations, drains, etc.) up to, finally, the monitoring of the system and the work. Particular attention will be given to the study of slope stability, landslides (in earth and rock), and related reclamation and defense works. Each aspect will be addressed with exercises referring to the NTC-18 technical standard.

The course deals with the resolution methods of structural systems, with particular reference to the evaluation of stresses, deformations and displacements of isostatic and hyperstatic structures. The course includes the study of structures typically used in civil construction, such as multi-hyperstatic frame systems and flat and spatial reticular structures. During the course, some structures will be assigned that the student will have to solve both manually, applying the notions learned during the course attendance, and using a numerical calculation code. The execution of the assigned themes is a necessary condition to be able to take the oral exam.

The teaching aims to introduce the hydraulic and hydrological principles used to size the hydraulic infrastructures, in particular those responsible for the hydraulic protection of the territory. The design, verification and management criteria are illustrated through their application to real cases.

This teaching defines the principles for the design, execution and testing of buildings, with regard to their required performance in terms of seismic capacity.

The course therefore provides the general safety criteria, deals with the actions that must be used in the project in seismic areas, illustrates the characteristics of the materials and products, defines the methods of seismic analysis and safety verification, and, more generally, deals with the aspects relating to the seismic safety of the works.

The teaching focuses on ex-novo constructions, with particular reference to reinforced concrete and steel structures.

The course intends to cover the general aspects concerning the main phases for the management and maintenance of road networks such as the monitoring of the conditions of the pavement through the survey and analysis of instability and the choices of the type of intervention on a technical-economic basis. At the end of the course the student will have to acquire the basic knowledge for the planning of road pavement maintenance works.

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to computational issues aimed at the numerical solution of structural mechanics problems.

We consider the discretization of structural problems governed by systems of partial differential equations through the passage from the continuous model (infinite number of degrees of freedom) to the discrete model (finite number of degrees of freedom).

In particular, the Finite Element Method is presented for the numerical resolution of the main structural problems of beams and plates.

Credits 9

The student must carry out a curricular internship, or an experience aimed at completing the university education, by carrying out activities in internal or external structures of the University, in RSM, in Italy or abroad.

The duration of the internship is equal to 240 hours of activity, as foreseen in the educational plan of the course of study.

The curricular internship can be carried out internally at the University (internal internship) or externally in public or private bodies, at the student's choice, subject to approval by the Academic Coordinator for Internships.
