Knowledge and understanding
The course, which is configured as a natural continuation of the course of Structural Mechanics, aims to improve the basic structural skills of students.
In particular, the course is intended to:
- complete the study of structural models introduced in the Course of Structural Mechanics
- study the mechanical behavior of materials and their response in presence of cracks
- study the mechanical behavior of materials and their response in presence of cracks propagation due to cyclic loading.
Applying knowledge and understanding
At the end of the Course, each student should be able to model one-dimensional structures (cables) and two-dimensional structures and to determine their equilibrium conditions, and to be able to assess the safety with respect to the fracture failure of civil, mechanical, aeronautical structures.
At the end of the Course, each student should know all the technical words related to the topics treated.
