AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is addressed to two main objectives: the first one is related to deepen some topics inherent  the Structural Engineering courses, the second one to face the basic principles of the seismic design.  

As far as the first one concerns, the analysis and design of precast reinforced concrete structures are faced together with the use of numerical tools and software with general purpose for the structural analysis.

As far as the second one concerns, the fundamentals of structural dynamic are illustrated as contents propaedeutic to the principles of seismic design for various typological structures, like as steel, reinforced concrete and masonry buildings.

In the laboratory of the course, such contents are applied by using a software that works within the Finite Element Modelling and by analysing various example with specific reference to recommendations and rules provided by the codes currently in force in Italy (Norme Tecniche per le Costruzioni 2008).

Teaching methods

Theory (50) + Excercise (10) + Laboratory (40)

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Fundamentals of structural dynamic: Single Degree of Freedom (SDOF) in elastic field, extension to nonlinear field (overdamped and inelastic spectra, use of the q factor)

Seismic action: possible intensity measures, response spectrum (elastic and for design aims)

Structural morphology: regularity principles, ductility concept.

Linear and nonlinear analysis methods for the seismic design

Seismic design for various structural types (steel, reinforced concrete and masonry buildings): structural details, capacity design rules.

Fundamentals of Finite Element Modelling Approach for the structural analsys

Precast reinforced concrete structures: constructive details, analysis of the section subjected to normal force and bending, employs.
