MODALITÀ DI SVOLGIMENTO DEL CORSO DEVELOPMENT OF THE COURSE

Convenzionale

72 hours in total: 44 hours of Lectures; 22 hours of Labs; 6 hours of Examples and Exercises.


RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO ATTESI LEARNING OUTCOMES
Knowledge and Understanding.

At the end of the Course, students will get knowledge for the analysis and design of structural systems typical of environmental engineering for both static and seismic actions. The knowledge will be achieved through classroom lectures, which also involves classroom tutorials.


Capacity to apply Knowledge and Understanding.

The student will be able to model, design and analyse structural systems typical of environmental engineering, subjected to static loads and seismic actions. The above application capabilities are achieved through tutorials, self-knowledge application and numerical exercises.


Transversal Skills.

Skills gained at the end of the course enable students to develop judgment autonomy in the field of seismic analysis and design of structural systems typical of environmental engineering, such as the capability to choose the most appropriate analysis approach and technical solution to solve typical structural problems related to different environmental scenarios.

PROGRAMMA PROGRAM

Lectures (44 hours): Elements of seismology, seismic risk and hazard analysis. Basics of dynamics of Single Degree of Freedom (SDoF) systems: undamped vs. damped systems; free vs. forced vibrations; periodic vs. non-periodic forces, i.e., seismic actions; elastic vs. inelastic system; analytical and numerical solutions; elastic vs inelastic response spectra; use of matlab code to develop displacement, velocity and acceleration histories and the response spectra of a SDoF system under different assumptions. Basics of dynamics of Multi Degree of Freedom (MDoF) systems: modal analysis and forced vibrations, seismic action. Seismic design code: introduction to the Eurocodes, limit states, seismic action, design spectra, equivalent static analysis, modal analysis and response spectrum analysis. Seismic design rules and structural conception for reinforced concrete structures. Solution of indeterminate structures: displacement method of plane frames. Foundations: design of surface foundations and pile caps. Beams on Winkler foundation: application on circular tanks. Kirchhoff plate: applications on retaining walls and storage rectangular tanks.
Labs (22 hours): Development of the seismic design according to the Eurocodes of a multi-story reinforced concrete frame.
Examples & Exercises (6 hours): Tutorials on Matlab and numerical integration methods for the solution of SDoF systems under non-periodic excitations; Exercises on the displacement method; Modeling examples in SAP2000.

MODALITÀ DI SVOLGIMENTO DELL'ESAME DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXAMINATION
Learning Evaluation Methods.

The evaluation of student learning is based on two assessments:
- a written test concerning theoretical topics;
- an oral exam consisting in a discussion of the written test, of some theoretical questions on the topics covered during the course and a discussion of the seismic design of the reinforced concrete building carried out during the course.


Learning Evaluation Criteria.

Through the written test and the oral exam, the student must demonstrate to have a clear knowledge of the topics covered during the course.


Learning Measurement Criteria.

The evaluation of each assessment is expressed in thirtieths.


Final Mark Allocation Criteria.

The student is expected to pass both (written and oral) assessments. The final mark of the course
will be calculated after the oral exam as the average of the marks received for these two
assessments. The 'lode' will be awarded to students who, having correctly completed the
assessments, show an outstanding understanding of the subject.
