Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course aims at introducing the fundamentals of the mechanical behaviour of hard soils/soft rocks; intact rocks and rock masses. The relevant features of such materials, as well as the theoretical and numerical tools available for their modelling will also be discussed. In particular, as far as rock masses are concerned, both the continuum and the discerete approaches will be introduced. The final part of the course focuses on practical solution of relevant problems, by using numerical tools.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

The purpose of the course is to give students knowledge of the theoretical issues, capability to perform structural design analyses and choose the appropariate methods, capability to present their conclusions. With reference to the European descriptors:

  • Knowledge and understanding (DdD1): knowledge of theories for modelling soils, hard soils/soft rocks, rocks and rock masses. Knowlwdge of the discrete numerical methods for rock masses
  • Applying knowledge and understanding (DdD2): ability to choose the appropriate modelling approach and the design parameters of the problems under investigation.
  • Communication skills (DdD4): capability to report the conclusions of the analyses and the outcomes of the design procedure in a clear and consistent way.
  • Learning skills (DdD5): ability to elaborate information on the basis of the provided teaching.
