10 CFU - 1° Semester

**Structural Engineering**The aim of the course is to provide the student with the theoretical knowledge and application skills needed for the design of steel and concrete structures. First, a geometric model will be defined to represent the structure. Second, the internal forces will be determined. Finally, the cross-section of the members will be verified.

**Design of structures**Development of knowledges for the design of steel structures and reinforced concrete structures.

**Structural Engineering**Theoretical lessons and examples.

**Design of structures**The classes are dedicated to the development of the projects of steel and r.c. structural members.

**Structural Engineering**Design Approaches. Modern Codes. Probabilistic and semi-probabilistic approaches. Limit States. Loads. Resistance of concrete and steel: compression strength, tensile strength, elastic modulus. Acceptance of materials. Shrink and fluage. Axial force. Bending moment. Eccentric axial force. Shear force. Punching. Torsion. Serviceabiity limit states. Steel Structures. Axial force. Instability of members. Local Instability. Bending moment. Eccentric axial force. Shear force. Serviceability limit states. Bolted and welded connections.

**Design of structures**Features and behaviour of concrete and steel materials.

Design of structural members of r.c. structures: slabs, beams, columns.

Design of structural members of steel structures.

Basics on behaviour and design of connections in steel sctructures.
