Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of this course the student should know elementary analysis methods to evaluate stress and strain states of the structures. Moreover, he should gain understanding of the fundamental principles of the design methods and evaluation of structural reliability, as well as instruments and techniques to draft the structural design.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
The student should be able to compute actions on constructions and resultants stress and strain fields in the structure, to design reinforced concrete and steel structural elements, including foundations and supports, on the basis of design codes. Finally, the student should be able to draft design results with relative details.
By the end of the course, the student should be able to evaluate, with critical mind, the good choice for the structural element design and its feasibleness.
The student should be able to clearly present the results of the design activity by means of tables, charts and drawings.
