Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills in the area of design, reliability assessment and realization of masonry and composite structures. Student has to obtain and prove an adequate general overview of solved problems. Student also has to work out the individual project related to the scope of the thesis.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations

Summary

The analysis of masonry and composite elements and structures, material models and solution methods for stress-strain state. Material models of mortar, masonry units and masonry. The effect of geometric and material nonlinearity. Time-depending models of creep and shrinkage of masonry. Prestressed masonry, types of prestressing. The state of stress analysis in anchorage zones.
