The course aims at completing the education of structural engineers under the profile of the assessment and analysis of the existing structures and infrastructures and their strengthening and retrofitting according to National and International technical code provisions. Lectures will first deepen the issue of the acquisition of an adequate level of knowledge of existing structures through structural surveys and inspections aimed at the definition of proper modelling and analysis strategies. After the course will face nonlinear structural analysis and modelling of reinforced concrete and masonry structures subject to static and dynamic loads and the approaches to assess their performance before and after retrofitting interventions using traditional and innovative techniques. References will be finally made to structural health monitoring.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Group project;
The final exam will consist of an individual oral interview starting from the discussion of an assigned project and specific homework which can be realized in a team. The project will concern the assessment of the static and seismic vulnerability of a masonry or reinforced concrete structure and the design of the retrofitting interventions according to the Italian Technical Code and Eurocodes. During the examination, the student will be asked to discuss the design choices illustrating the engineering motivations adopted to define the proposed solution. The student will also be asked to discuss theoretical aspects illustrated in the course showing adequate mastery of the subjects. The exam is passed with a grade of 18/30. The final grade will consider 35% the team project and the homework and 65% the individual oral exam.
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità 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'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

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.
