OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The aim of the course is to analyze some of the main aspects related to soil-structure interaction phenomena that occur in the built environment. Since the focus is on existing buildings, after a first part that deals with the types of foundation and the basic methods used in practice for settlement assessment and bearing capacity calculation, the issues of greatest interest, due to external and natural causes (e.g. slope movements, soil liquefaction, groundwater oscillations, subsidence, etc.) and anthropogenic (e .g. deep excavations, shallow tunnels, etc.), are detailed and studied in depth. The course also provides the knowledge and skills to students on design and intervention guidelines relating to the foundation-soil system, such as the strengthening of foundations, underpinnig and soil improvement.

Modalità didattiche

This module uses lectures, tutorial exercises, case histories and practice exercises. Technical visits could also be organized.

PROGRAMMA/CONTENUTO

Existing buildings: foundation types; settlement and bearing capacity assessment approaches.

Analysis of geotechnical problems: natural (e.g. landslides and slope movements, earthquake and soil liquefaction) and anthropogenic (e.g. deep excavations, tunneling).

Damage levels and practical assessment methods.

Intervention techniques on the foundation-soil system:  underpinning, reinforcement and ground improvement.
