Course Description Course topics 1) Soil-structure reactions for applied displacements of vertically embedded systems at serviceability and ultimate limit states. Design of R/C, P/C and FRC piles subjected to axial loads and bending moments. 2) Soil-structure reactions for applied displacements of horizontally embedded systems at serviceability and ultimate limit states. Hydraulic intervention measures for hazard mitigation: superficial and deep draining systems (trenches). Analysis and design of embedded pipes: pipelines, vertical hollow piles. 3) Deformation response of the soils in horizontal excavations: mechanical identification, diagnosis and operative check. Analysis and design of underground structures: prefabricated tunnels and box culverts. 4) Evaluating the triggering of a landslide through the Limit Equilibrium Approach: methods of slices (Fellenius, Bishop, Janbu, Morgenstern and Price, Spencer). Structural intervention measures for hazard mitigation: hybrid methods for designing active and passive protective structures (anchored retaining walls, slope stabilizing piles, earth reinforced embankments). Advanced numerical approaches for evaluating the propagation of a landslide: DEM and SPH methods. Analysis and Design of structures interacting with soil: ground anchors, sheet-piles, retaining walls, advanced retaining devices. 5) Dynamic and impulsive loads: (a) simplified Newmark method applied to the stability assessment of a rock slab during earthquake loading; (b) rockfall impact on sheltering structures. Design of sheltering structures under impact loading. The different causes which affect durability of environmental structures will be described. Several techniques will be introduced in order to improve durability and the main checks needed to guarantee the serviceability along the full structure life will be explained. Some design approaches will be discussed. During the course several examples of monitoring systems used to check structure behaviour during the construction phases and in the structure life time will be discussed. The course is essentially related to the observational methods proposed by Eurocode 7 and discusses with examples the key points which keep robust the control measuring system both in terms of error estimation and reliability of the data acquisition and management. Also specialised systems related to guarantee safety of the structures in emergency conditions or after significant accidents will be discussed.
