Ing - Civ (Mag.)(ord. 270) - MI (488) INGEGNERIA CIVILE - CIVIL ENGINEERING*AZZZZ092843 - THEORY OF STRUCTURES AND STABILITY OF STRUCTURES

 Obiettivi dell'insegnamento
 The module aims at the thorough description of the mechanical response of elastic structures, such as thin walled beams, curved beams, plates. The structural theories are completely developed, with special focus on the applications in the field of structural engineering.

 Risultati di apprendimento attesi
 The student should achieve understanding of the general framework of structural theories and of the structural behavior of thin walled beams, curved beams and plates. The student should gain knowledge of the governing equations for the above mentioned problems and of their solution. The student should be able to apply knowledge and understanding to the solution of structural problems by means of analytical tools.

 Modalità di valutazione
 The examination is represented by a take-home test and an oral interrogation. The take-home test will be published on the website and sent by e-mail to the candidates one week before the examination date. The exercises must be solved by the students individually and the solution must be delivered on the examination date. By means of the take home test, the teacher evaluates the capability of the students to apply knowledge and understanding of the structural theories to the solution of non-trivial problems. The oral aims at the assessment of the student’s knowledge and understanding of the mathematical formulation for thin walled beams, curved beams and plates. The interrogation might be preceded by the written answers to some theoretical questions.
