Knowledge and understanding
In the first part, the course presents the mechanical resistance characteristics of materials for constructions and related experimental investigations to be carried out on the basis of existing technical recommendations.
Then, the fracture failure is analysed.
Finally, some structural analysis softwares and development environments are presented.
Applying knowledge and understanding
At the end of the Course, each student should:
(1) be able to perform acceptance tests (on structural materials) requested to the construction site engineer by the Technical Rules;
(2) be able to assess the safety with respect to the fracture failure of civil, mechanical, aeronautical structures;
(3) have the necessary knowledge to use computational tools with a high level in the professional field.
At the end of the Course, each student should know all the technical words related to the topics treated.
