A short PhD course titled Understanding nonlinear problems in civil and industrial engineering will take place on 6-10 May 2019 at the Department of Engineering of the Università di Roma Tre.
Understating nonlinear problems in civil and industrial engineering is essential to deal with the numerous challenges that the engineers will be call to tackle in the next future to design resilient structures against natural or technological threats. Accordingly, the course intents to provide the basic framework of nonlinear methods and modeling in civil and industrial engineering with applications on buildings, bridges and structures of the chemical industry.
Objectives of the course
The main objective of this course is to familiarize students with the state-of-the-art of static and dynamic analysis of structures in nonlinear regime. At the end of the course, students should be able to: familiarize with the basic concepts and types of nonlinear problems in structural mechanics, understand the basic aspects of nonlinear modeling and their computational implementation, understand the solution strategies for nonlinear problems, understand material nonlinearity , i.e. constitutive laws for steel and concrete and masonry, solve specific nonlinear problems by using nonlinear static and dynamic analysis: RC frames, Masonry Structures, Industrial equipment.
