The course focuses on the safety assessment of existing buildings including also the main aspects related to soil-structure interaction phenomena that occur in the built environment.
Among various structural types, particular attention will be devoted in the course to existing masonry and reinforced concrete structures investigating their vulnerability factors to ordinary and seismic actions and the more appropriate methods to check their safety. Moreover, as far the geotecnichal module concerns, in addition to specific issues dealing with the types of foundation also those related to external and natural causes (e.g. slope movements, soil liquefaction, groundwater oscillations, subsidence, etc.) and anthropogenic (e .g. deep excavations, shallow tunnels, etc.) will be examined.
