Progettazione per il Recupero di Edifici
Repair and restoration of buildings Enrico Quagliarini
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course aims to provide students with the tools needed to design interventions for the recovery and preservation of historical buildings in the light of the current instances of seismic upgrading and architectural restoration. The purpose is to train a high-level professional engineer able to identify the problems and to provide consequent design solutions about the issues related to the recovery, the enhancing and the preservation of existing buildings, especially by taking into account the innovations in this topic.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Students will have to be able to critically read existing buildings both from a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint, so as to face with high-level (complex) design solutions and to carry out the research and development of new methodologies. They will also have to be able to responsibly design solutions based on their professional and engineering methodologies, beyond the usual rules and the current standards. This will be performed through the following skills: 1. The capability of reading existing buildings along their historical evolution; 2. The capability of identifying their damages and degradation processes; 3. The capability of designing the right solution following the previous issues.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
Students, working alone or in team, will have to resolve one or more problems by providing some designing solutions. This will contribute to enhance their autonomy and their team-working, and to favour their communication skills so as to clearly and properly justify their designing choices. In this framework, students will be driven to autonomously look for their educational material, to get a synthesis, to test their skills on problems solving and to explain what they learnt.

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
students are evaluated through 2 levels:
- first level: evaluation of the annual training exercises;
- second level: oral exam on some of the topics of the course.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
Students will have to be able to critically read existing buildings both from a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint, at both the two previous levels.
Particular attention will be paid at their capability of reading existing buildings along their historical evolution; identifying their damages and degradation processes; responsibly designing the right solution following the previous issues.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Students' skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices will be evaluated at both the two previous levels.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The maximum evaluation, that is 30 cum laude, is assigned to students who demonstrate, at both the previous two levels, an excellent skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices. The smallest evaluation, that is 18, is assigned to students who demonstrate, at both the previous two levels, a sufficient skill on problem-solving by providing technical detailed designing solutions and properly justifying their design choices.
