Lecturer

Prerequisites
N.A.

Objectives
Students should become familiar with the common construction techniques in resistant masonry, timber roofs and pavements; acquire the skills to apply previous knowledge of structural engineering and applicable regulations for the design of this structures.

Program
1. Masonry structures: Types and performance of structural systems. Physical and mechanical properties of materials. Design for ultimate limit states. Global stability of masonry structures. Serviceability limit states. Constructive provisions.
2. Wood structures: Types and performance of structural systems. Physical and mechanical properties of materials. Design for ultimate limit states. Structural connections. Serviceability limit states. Constructive provisions.
3. Design of composite wood-concrete floors.
4. Design for different material connections.

Evaluation Methodology
Assessment consists of a written test (80% of the final mark) of a theoretical-practical nature worth 20 grade points, with the minimum pass mark of 9 grade points, and a practical assignment worth 20 grade points (20% of the final mark).
