Syllabus

Computational Mechanics

SSD: ICAR/08 , CFU: 9
Lezione: 30 ore
Esercitazione: 22 ore

Obiettivi formativi

The course in Computational Mechanics aims to give basics and some advanced knowledge of structural mechanics, numerical analysis, computer aided design and programming techniques. The goal is to provide the students with the skills for the modelling, formulation, analysis and implementation of simulation tools for structural engineering problems, as well as skills for understanding these approaches in the broader context of engineering science. The student will be able to develop computer codes and to use commercial codes in safety, as he will learn the basis of the computational methods. The course can be considered of great interest for a professional profile devoted to the structural analysis and to the design of the constructions.

Highway Design and Traffic Engineering

S S D: ICAR/04 CFU: 9
Lezione: 30 ore
Esercitazione: 22 ore

Obiettivi formativi

The course is devoted to the deepened analysis of issues related to the design of a transport infrastructure, with reference to the road intersections and road pavements. The courses is intended to provide the methodological basis in order to evaluate the main elements of a road intersections with regards to the functional, geometrical, economical and safety aspects and to assess pavement behaviour.
Main concepts of probability and statistics are briefly recalled in order to introduce the probabilistic approach to the interrupted traffic flow theory. Gap acceptance and queueing theory are employed in order to study level of service for unsignalized intersections, ramps and weaving areas. Subsequently main concepts related to road construction and pavement design are briefly recalled and mechanistic empirical approach for superstructure design is focused.

Geotechnical Engineering

S S D: ICAR/07 CFU: 9
Lezione: 30 ore
Esercitazione: 22 ore

Obiettivi formativi

This is a classical course of geotechnical engineering dealing with soil mechanics and its main engineering applications. The physical characteristics of soils are briefly recalled from previous undergraduate courses. The mechanical behaviour of soils is treated in some detail starting from the basic principles of soil mechanics and moving towards more advanced constitutive modelling, which can be effectively used by means of available numerical modelling. Geotechnical design and construction is then introduced with particular reference to foundations, soil improvement and retaining structures.

Part one: review of basic concepts
- Physical characteristics of soils and permeability
- Laboratory equipment for mechanical testing
- Principle of effective stresses

Part two: soil mechanics
- Mehanical behaviour of coarse grained soils: compressibility and strength
- Mechanical behaviour of fine grained soils: compressibility and strength
- Constitutive models
- Seepage and consolidation

Part three: applications
- Direct foundations: bearing capacity and settlements
- Pile foundations
- Earth pressure and earth retaining structures
- Soil improvement
- In situ investigations
