054154 - ENGINEERING STRUCTURES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
094797 - DESIGN OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND PROTECTIVE STRUCTURES
The course is aimed at giving the bases of design of protective and environmental structures with specifically finalized to risk mitigation, which are characterized by a significant soil-structure interaction. The proposed topics use a unified approach of geotechnical and structural design in the frameworks of Eurocodes, showing their validity limits. The final purpose is the teaching of a key approach to the design of these structures, often conditioned by field data interpretation, available technologies and limited knowledge of the specific fields.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
The expected results are the students’ knowledge of the theoretical issues, capability to perform structural design analyses aimed at risk mitigation intervention for real case studies, capability to present their conclusions. With reference to the European descriptors:
Knowledge and understanding: knowledge of theories for modelling of soil-structure interaction aimed at performance-based design of interventions.
Applying knowledge and understanding: ability to select the key-design parameters and to propose the procedure for their determination.
Communication skills: ability to clearly convey to any audience the conclusions of mitigation intervention.
Learning skills: ability to autonomously increase knowledge with respect to skills taught during classes.
Design of steel, R/C, P/C and FRC piles subjected to eccentric axial loads, bending moments and horizontal loads.
Soil-structure reactions for displacements controlled problems of vertically embedded systems at serviceability and ultimate limit states. Design constitutive laws, serviceability and ultimate limit states related to eccentric bending and shear of linear elements.
Analysis and design of precast embedded pipes and underground structures for risk mitigation intervention: pipelines, prefabricated tunnels and box culverts.
Design parameters and equations for ULS and SLS design. Temporary and serviceability load conditions for tunnel segments, detailing. Plate design subjected to membrane and slab actions: yield lines and strut and tie solutions.
Analysis and Design of stabilizing structures: ground anchors, sheet-piles, advanced retaining devices.
Structural intervention measures for hazard mitigation: hybrid methods for designing active and passive protective structures (anchored retaining walls, slope stabilizing piles). Conceptual design, main equations for the design of ground anchors, tests for the assessment of the selected solution; advanced solutions based on new materials lie FRC and new approaches to consider the soil-structure interaction.
Basic knowledge on structural mechanics applied to linear members. Fundamentals of R/C and steel structure design.
Modalità di valutazione
The exam is oral. The admission to the oral discussion is conditioned to the submission of a report with the execution of two over the three design applications suggested during the attendance. The oral exam will start with the discussion of the report choices.
