Knowledge and ability to understand:
The aim of the course is to consolidate and strengthen the skills required for a correct and complete interpretation of the structural behavior of existing buildings. The knowledge acquired, also from the point of view of structural behavior, should allow the student to face correctly the analysis of the current state of an existing structure and the design of the interventions for the consolidation, making the most suitable choices also in relation to the structural pathologies and deficiencies found.
The student must have developed the ability to identify and detect all the material, structural and pathological aspects that characterize a historical building and to assume them as the founding basis of the restoration and consolidation project
- Autonomy of judgement:
Upon passing the exam, the student will have developed the ability to critically assess the state of conservation - from a structural point of view - of a historic building, identifying the consolidation techniques most appropriate to the case in exam, balancing conservation, safety and functionality.
- Communication skills:
During the course, students must refine their language skills, with specific reference to the technical terminology of the course, in order to communicate their project effectively and accurately.
- Learning skills:
The student must acquire the ability to critically evaluate different possible solutions and justify their design choices in a wider cultural context.
