This "workshop" aims to provide theoretical and practical skills to assess the structural safety of an existing building and design strengthening interventions (if needed).
The workshop aims to integrate the knowledge acquired in the structural area into an application path that, starting from the knowledge of the existing building, through the assessment of its safety and structural diagnosis, leads to the design of structural strengthening (where needed), taking into account all the technical, functional, economic and conservation issues that always characterise actual retrofitting problems.
The participation of the students in “Structural Rehabilitation Workshop” activities, as well as individual study, will allow them to:
Contents of the following courses: Structural Modelling and Analysis of Existing Buildings, Structural and Geotechnical Assessment of Existing Buildings, Structural Retrofitting and Strengthening Techniques.
Theoretical lessons and description of case studies
Practical exercises in groups of 3/4 students
The course consists of theoretical lectures and practical exercises.
Theoretical lectures will be related to the following topics:
In most of the cases, the topics will be faced by means of case studies.
The practical exercises will be carried out in groups of 3/4 students. One real building will be assigned to each group. Starting from the geometrical survey and historical information, that will be provided by the teachers, the students will carry out the entire path of knowledge, analysis, and structural assessment of the building. Finally, the students will evaluate whether strengthening interventions are needed and will design them, evaluating their costs.

Group discussion of the exercises + Individual oral exam
The group discussion of the exercises aims to evaluate the capacity of the students of synthetically describe the work done and discuss it in a critical way.
The individual oral exam aims to assess if the student has acquired the theoretical contents of the course, as well as critical skills.
