Ingegneria per l'ambiente e il territorio
The course is subdivided into two main parts.
The first part (SM) is related to the continuum mechanics, the theory of elasticity and to the calculus of civil and oil structures made of different materials (i.e. concrete and metal). The subject is addressed according to the most modern formulations, suitable for numerical implementation.
The second part (AG) deals with rock mechanics fundamentals and the rock engineering application. The subject is based on the characterisation of rock materials and masses, on the solution of some typical conditions for surface-underground excavations, on the monitoring of natural - artificial structures as a part of the design methodology in geomechanics.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Ability to evaluate qualitatively and quantitatively the mechanical behaviour of man made (engineering works) and natural (rock masses) structures with reference to the main geomechanical properties of a rock material and of a rock mass as well.
