Strength of Materials I, Strength of Materials II, Theory of Structures I and II, Reinforced Concrete I and II
Each subject of the course will be delivered through the explanation of theoretical concepts followed by exemplification of practical situations where these concepts are needed. Practical examples will be solved. It will also be distributed other exercises to be solved in class by students under the supervision of teachers. Students will also have the opportunity to put questions outside of class period, during office hours of teachers.
The aim is for students to gain skills to assess the state of existing structures and to devise strategies for structural conservation or rehabilitation of these structures. The concrete structures will have special attention, but other types of structures will be also covered, including steel, wood and masonry structures. Some of the new approaches and standards recently published or in preparation will be enclosed.
Estruturas de betão: conservação, avaliação estrutural e reforço de estruturas. Estruturas de madeira: conservação, avaliação estrutural e reforço de estruturas. Estruturas metálicas: conservação, avaliação estrutural e reforço de estruturas. Estruturas de alvenaria: conservação, avaliação estrutural e reforço de estruturas.
During the teaching period, 1 test will be carried out for 100% of overall classification. Students may be released from examination if they have positive rating in the test.: 100.0%
