40137 - AFPG - Lab-based Course on Structural Diagnostics II

Academic Year 2021/2022

  • Teaching Mode: Traditional lectures
  • Campus: Cesena
  • Corso: Single cycle degree programme (LMCU) in Architecture (cod. 9265)

Learning outcomes

The activities that will be carried out at this laboratory relate to the study of the mechanical behavior of building materials such as concrete, steel, reinforced concrete, wood and masonry. To determine the mechanical properties of these materials, it is necessary to conduct a suitable experimentation with destructive and microdistrictive tests on the materials themselves, as required and described in Italian Standards.

Course contents

The activities to be carried out by this laboratory is focused mainly on the study of the mechanical behavior of construction materials, such as concrete, steel, reinforced concrete, wood and masonry.
In order to determine the mechanical characteristics of materials, it is necessary to conduct appropriate testing program as required and described by technical standards.
Such knowledge becomes even more necessary especially when it comes to recovery interventions of existing buildings.Besides, the most recent advances in structural sensors will be illustrated.
