Objectives
LEARNING OUTCOMES AND SKILLS TO BE ACQUIRED
TO LEARN THE ISSUES INVOLVED IN THE DESIGN OF STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS BY PROVIDING ADEQUATE SKILLS FOR THE DESIGN AND CHECK OF CONNECTIONS AND MEMBERS. TO LEARN HOW A STRUCTURAL INFORMATIVE MODEL OF A METAL BUILDING CAN BE REALISED.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
TO ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURAL TYPOLOGIES TYPICAL OF STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS, THE BEHAVIOUR AND CHECKING METHODS FOR MEMBERS, THE BEHAVIOUR AND METHODS OF ANALYSIS AND CHECK OF WELDED AND BOLTED CONNECTIONS ACCORDING TO THE ITALIAN AND EUROPEAN STANDARDS, THE PRINCIPLES OF SEISMIC DESIGN OF BRACED AND UNBRACED STEEL STRUCTURES. TO KNOW THE WAY THE STRUCTURAL ENGINEER PARTICIPATES TO THE BIM PROCESS. TO KNOW HOW REALISING FEM CALCULATION MODELS AND STRUCTURAL BIM MODELS OF METAL BUILDINGS.

ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
BEING ABLE TO:
- IDENTIFY AND CALCULATE THE DESIGN LOADS ON A TYPICAL STEEL BUILDING;
- IDENTIFY THE DIFFERENT COLLAPSE MECHANISMS OF STEEL MEMBERS SUBJETED TO TENSION, COMPRESSION AND BENDING, AND CALCULATE THEIR DESIGN RESISTANCE;
- SELECT THE MOST APPROPRIATE CROSS-SECTIONS AND SIZES OF MEMBERS AND BEAMS SUBJECTED TO TENSION, COMPRESSION OR BENDING BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGN CRITERIA;
- IDENTIFY THE DIFFERENT FAILURE MODES OF BOLTED AND WELDED CONNECTIONS, AND DETERMINE THEIR DESIGN RESISTANCE;
- APPLY THE DESIGN RULES PROVIDED BY NORMATIVE CODES TO ENSURE THE ULTIMATE AND SERVICEABILITY LIMIT STATE SAFETY OF STEEL MEMBERS;
- USE ADVANCED CALCULATION CODES FOR THE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF STEEL STRUCTURES;
- USE STRUCTURAL BIM SOFTWARE FOR THE INFORMATIZATION OF THE PRODUCTION PROCESS.

AUTONOMY OF JUDGEMENT
TO BE ABLE TO OPTIMISE THE STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF CONNECTIONS AND MEMBERS AND TO CRITICALLY EXAMINE THE RESULTS OF STRUCTURAL ANALYSES, CHECKING THE VALIDITY OF THE ANALYSIS USING ELEMENTARY MODELS. KNOWING HOW DEVELOPING A PROJECT WITH THE AUTHORING SOFTWARE TYPICAL OF THE STRUCTURAL BIM METHOD. TO BE ABLE TO DETECT POSSIBLE CONSTRUCTION MISTAKES AND CORRECT THEM IN THE DESIGN PHASE.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS
BEING ABLE TO WORK IN GROUPS AND ORALLY PRESENT TOPICS RELATED TO THE ANALYSIS OF STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS WITH REFERENCE TO THE STRUCTURAL MODELLING OF CONNECTIONS AND MEMBERS. BEING ABLE TO WORK IN GROUPS AND INTERACT USING A COMMON DATA ENVIRONMENT.

ABILITY TO LEARN
TO BE ABLE TO EXTEND THE KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED TO STRUCTURAL SITUATIONS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE EXAMINED DURING THE COURSE.

Prerequisites
THE COURSE ASSUMES THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS OF RIGID AND DEFORMABLE SOLID.

2. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF TENSION MEMBERS (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
3. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF AXIALLY-LOADED COMPRESSION MEMBERS (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
4. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF BEAMS (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
5. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF BEAM-COLUMNS (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
6. ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF THE CONNECTIONS (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
7. SEISMIC DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR STEEL STRUCTURES (THEORY: 5 HOURS);
8. SEISMIC RESISTANT STEEL FRAMES (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);

10. ECCENTRICALLY BRACED FRAMES (THEORY: 3 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS);
11. BASES OF ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF STEEL-CONCRETE COMPOSITE STRUCTURES (THEORY: 8 HOURS - EXERCISES: 2 HOURS).
Teaching Methods
TEACHING IS DEVELOPED BY MEANS OF LESSONS ON THEORY, EXERCISES IN THE CLASSROOM AND PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES IN LABORATORY. THE EXERCISES IN THE CLASSROOM CONSIST ON THE APPLICATION OF THE STUDIED TOPICS AND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TWO PROJECTS: MULTISTOREY STEEL FRAME.
LECTURES: 40 H
EXERCISES: 20 H
Verification of learning
THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE COURSE GOALS WILL BE VERIFIED BY MEANS OF AN ORAL EXAM WHICH CONSISTS ON:
A) DISCUSSION OF THE EXERCISES WORKED OUT BY THE STUDENT DURING THE COURSE;
B) DISCUSSION OF TOPICS COVERED IN THE LESSONS.
THE DURATION OF THE ORAL EXAM IS APPROXIMATELY 45 MINS
FOR THE EXCELLENCE THE FOLLOWING WILL BE CONSIDERED:
QUALITY OF THE PRESENTATION, CONSIDERING THE USE OF THE TECHNICAL TERMS
- CAPACITY TO CORRELATE THE DIFFERENT TOPICS OF THE COURSE AND ALSO THE TOPICS OF DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES
- CAPACITY OF JUDGEMENT
