Year 1
Semester S1
ECTS Credits 6
Workload OT(15H)
Scientific area Engenharia Civil
Entry requirements N.A.
Learning outcomes The UC aims to complement the study of the structural behaviour of buildings. Students should acquire:
O1 - domain analysis of buildings
O2 - domain under the simplified analysis of structural systems
O3 - understanding of numerical analysis of structural systems
O4 - understanding of non-linear calculus
O5 - understanding of the application of experimental techniques
O6 - recognize the dynamic behaviour of structures
O7 - recognizing the differences in design depending on the structural material
Syllabus C1 - Introduction to the structural behaviour of buildings.
C2 - Structural analysis models
C3 - The influence of the structural material
C4 - Experimental techniques in the analysis of structures C5 - Non-linear analysis of structures
C6 - International standardization

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria For the course Structures of Buildings, with 6 ECTS, 16 hours of contact with the teacher (1 hour per week) were adopted, representing 10% of the total 160 hours. The total remaining hours are intended to autonomous work of the student, distributed among the individual study, theoretical and/or laboratory work or other, in accordance with the objectives of training required for the student in the course.
- Continuous evaluation: Individual practical work (TP) - 20 values
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
