Knowledge of differential calculus and basic concept of theory of elasticity.

Learning outcomes
The course gives knowledge and comprehension’s ability on the complexity of design structural process. It allows students to acquire advanced knowledge on the structural behavior of reinforced concrete, steel and masonry. By integrating the already given and acquired notions from the basic courses of physic and mechanical structures, this knowledge is useful for a clear awareness of engineering’s multidisciplinary context. In the course fundamentals concepts on actions, models and probabilistic methods of analysis are discussed as even the main concepts of design.
For the purpose of facing structural design themes- even very complex ones- and of illustrating the innovation and development of new technological processes throughout the knowledges’ application, students will be able to express a gamut of professionalizing abilities, such as: 1. The ability of giving the appropriate dimension to the structural elements so that building’s execution will reveal itself compatible also with architectural needs. 2. The ability of identifying the developing behavior of structural elements under the provided actions.
The students’ dedication in a design field which will be confronted in groups will give its contribute for the improvement of both the degree of independence in the analysis of structural problems, and the communicative capacity which comes from the team work too.

Fundamental concepts for structural design of reinforced concrete, prestress reinforced concrete, steel and masonry are developed during the course lessons. Reinforced and prestressed concrete: materials; concrete and steel for RC and pre-stressed structures; bond of steel bars embedded in concrete; linear elastic analysis of RC structures and ultimate state: normal force; bending of RC beams; shear. Limit analysis of RC and pre-stressed RC structures: flexural design of beams and one way slabs. Pre-stressed concrete strength design. Calculus of thin plates. Common foundation structures. Basic concepts of project in seismic area. Steel structures: materials and methods of analysis; trusses, frames, joints and constraints. Design of steel frames. Masonry structures: materials; compression and shear capacity. Design of masonry structures in common buildings.

Development of the examination
Examination is developed through written test and oral tests. During the written test the student has to develop problems shown in theoretical lessons and exercises; oral test concerns the analysis of project developed during the course of Laboratorio Tecnica delle Costruzioni.

Examination is positive if the student demonstrates knowledge about theoretical and practical concepts developed during the course of Tecnica delle Costruzioni and Laboratorio di Tecnica delle Costruzioni.

Criteria of measure are linked to the level of knowledge of structural engineering problems and methods of calculus.

The written test and the discussion about the project are evaluated from 0 to 30 points; the positive final vote is equal or higher than 18 points.The exam is considered positive with a vote equal or higher than 18 points. Maximum vote 30 points is reached with a very good structural knowledge; a maximum vote cum laude is assigned to excellent students.
