PERIOD: MAY The course aims to provide the fundamental tools necessary for the modelling of the failure behaviour of brittle or quasi-brittle materials and structures. The attention will be focused to structural elements containing defects (such as cracks, V-notches, holes), and subjected to different loading conditions. The crack onset or crack propagation load is achieved by means of the Finite Fracture Mechanics approach, based on the assumption of a crack advance which is discrete (and not infinitesimal, as in classical LEFM). Theoretical predictions will be compared with experimental data rising from different engineering fields.

The course will be organized as follows: - Fundamental concepts of linear elastic fracture mechanics (1.5 hours) - Finite Fracture Mechanics. Different theoretical models (1.5 hours) - Effects of the V-nocth, the root radius and the T-stress on the failure load in brittle structural elements (concrete, polymers, metals, rocks) subjected to different loading conditions. Interfaces and debonding. Applications in civil, mechanics and aerospace engineering (7 hours)

ModalitÓ di esame:
Exam:
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilitÓ o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'UnitÓ Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione pi¨ idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam:
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
