The whole Italian territory is potentially subject to seismic events and the study of the actions and effects of the earthquake is an essential phase of structural design. In this context, the seismic design of the building should be looked at as a necessary step of the architectural and structural design, accounting also of proper structural morphology and regularity
The module addresses the issues related to the structural design in seismic areas. It discusses the techniques of analysis and design of seismic resistant organisms, by addressing the structural design, modeling of actions, seismic analysis and structural calculation.
The aim of the course is to provide students with the essential tools of seismic design. Given the complexity of the phenomenon dealt with, it will supply the elements to evaluate the essential aspects of the analysis, including the choice of the seismic-resistant system, the criteria for modeling the seismic action and the structure, the methodology for calculation and seismic verification. With particular regard to the simplicity and the interpretation of the applied models, tools will be provided to evaluate the most suitable procedures, critically analyze the results obtained, and identify the most appropriate structural choices.
At the end of the course the students will be able to assess the seismic of the investigated structure, to evaluate the most effective structural solutions, to choose the criteria of seismic analysis, to define representation models of the action and of the structure, to carry out the calculation and seismic verification, to define structural choices.They will be able to address the issue of vulnerability mitigation of existing buildings in order to reduce the seismic risk within acceptable values.
The course is conducted through lectures given by the teacher. Some numerical exercises may be planned in class under the supervision of the teacher. The teacher also provides in advance the track of the lesson through AulaWeb.

The oral exam consists in a minimum of three questions on the theoretical contents discussed during the lessons. Moroever, a final question concern the discussion a case study proposed by the teacher. In this case students will be asked to assess to evaluate the most effective structural solutions, to discuss and choose the seismic analysis criteria and to assess the potential vulnerability factors.
