Modulo dell'insegnamento integrato: STRUCTURAL BUILDING DESIGN STUDIO

Obiettivi formativi

At the end of the course the student will know the basic elements for an appropriate reading and interpretation of all aspects dealing with the soil, its mechanical behavior and soil-structure interaction, in the design and construction of civil works. The student will demonstrate to understand the technical-scientific terminology in the geotechnical field.
The student will be able to carry out the geotechnical design of a simple shallow foundation and of a retaining wall.
The student will acquire the ability to interpret both field and laboratory geotechnical data and to model a real problem, in order to find the technically sound design solutions.
Communication skills:
The student should have acquired sufficient proper use of the language with regard to the topic specific terminology. The student will be able to write a report dealing with the design of a ahallow foundation.


The good knowledge of the fundamental of Structural mechanics is strongly recommended.
