Materiali Strutturali per l'Ingegneria Civile
Structural Materials Valeria Corinaldesi
Basic knowledge on chemistry and physics.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course enables students to acquire advanced knowledge on the structural behavior of materials, which is an essential basis for the development of applied studies in the field of Environment and Civil Engineering. The course enables students to acquire technical and technological knowledge for the use of construction materials, and for the knowledge of both mechanical characteristics and durability of the most common materials such as: concrete, steel and masonry.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
In order to address advanced design themes and treat the innovation and development of new products and new technological processes through the application of knowledge, the student should be able to interpret in a correct manner the causes of structural and technological behaviors already analyzed in other courses. TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The problem solving will contribute to improve the independent judgment skills of the students as well as their ability to learn and draw conclusions. The oral examination will contribute to develop ability to synthetize and communication skills.

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The exam will consist of an oral examination, in which the topics of the course will be discussed; it will consist of three questions related to three different topics among them illustreted in the course.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
During the oral examination, the candidate should exhibit a proper knowledge of the properties, behaviour, production technology and applications of the different classes of materials.The student will get maximum score if able to show deep knowledge on the varior topics of the course as well as if able to coherently describe concepts.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
A score will be attributed to each of the three questions with a grading scheme based on a scale of 30 points: 0 score menas question not answered; 18 score means sufficently answered question, while 30 score means fully answered question; intermediate scores as a consequence.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The final grade (to a maximum scale of thirty) will be the mean value of the scores obtained for each answer. The mean value will be calculated on three answers, but if the difference in the scores is higher than 10, a fourth question will be made and the final score will be the mean value calculated on four scores, the last included.
