Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course focuses on structural earthquake engineering with special reference to 1) the design of building structures for earthquake resistance and 2) the seismic assessment and retrofitting of existing structures. 


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

The objectives of the course are the students’ knowledge and understanding of the main concepts of seismic design, assessment and retrofitting of structures, capability to present and explain current and developing seismic design philosophies as well as to propose and discuss different strategies and techniques for seismic rehabilitation and retrofitting of structures. Specific examples of seismic design and retrofitting of buildings will be carried out and discussed.

Knowledge and understanding: knowledge of the main concepts of behavior, design, analysis and retrofitting of structures subjected to seismic actions.

Applying knowledge and understanding: know how to develop the seismic design and retrofitting of structures by means of suitable software tools complemented with ad hoc computations.

Making judgments: ability to identify the critical issues of design and retrofitting of structures in seismic areas, and to propose and discuss different strategies for problem solving.

Communication skills: ability to clearly present and explain the main aspects of seismic design philosophy as well as different strategies and techniques for seismic retrofitting with appropriate motivations.

Learning skills: ability to autonomously increase knowledge in comparison with what has been taught during classes.
