Course Title CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF STRUCTURES
Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 6.0
Semester Second Semester
Course Description The course introduce to the design techniques of the most widespread and applied structural elements. The design process will also take into account the correct integration of the structure with the architectural and the technical systems projects. The course will provide the knowledge to formulate and compare different admissible solutions of the structural problem in the framework of an optimization process. To achieve the above-mentioned goals, it is necessary to introduce "rough" design formulations based on the comparison between: the physical-mathematical model of the structure, the probabilistic evaluation of the structural response under possible critical events, laboratory and on-site tests, and finally taking into account the experience gained from similar construction projects. At the end, it should be clear that the structural design is the result of an iterative process based on a systematic procedure where the final draft of the project "reveals" itself after a series of successively improved sketches. Specific topics are: aims of the design, method Optimization criteria, Life cycle analysis and sustainability, Bracing systems, 3D frames (reinforced concrete, steel, composite, other materials), Trussworks, Vierendeel beams, Arches Plates and slabs, Shells, Suspended and cable stayed structures.
