Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will learn the theoretical bases and the fundamental methodologies for the design and verification of the structural elements of a masonry building subjected to static and seismic actions and how to conceive structural details.
Applying knowledge and understanding
The student should acquire all those skills which are the basis of a conscious design and will be able in a systematic way to fit within the building process. In particular a good ability in the structural concepts of new civil buildings subject to static and seismic action should be obtained.
The student will govern the procedure adopted in the current design practice, with a constant link between the theoretical knowledge and the practical applications.
The confidence gained through a constant connection between theoretical knowledge and applications, will allow the student to possess the necessary skills for results presentation.
The student will be able to design the structural elements of a masonry building.
