Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Advancing in knowledge and skills for the utilization of specialized software systems for the preparation of numerical models. Focus is given at non-linear structural response to loading considering statistical variation of input parameters.

Teaching methods



The subject is focused on the broadening of knowledge and skills necessary for advanced preparation of numerical models of civil engineering structures. Advanced modelling of non-linear tasks will be aimed especially at unidirectional supports, geometric nonlinearity and dynamic response of the structure to loading. Application of probabilistic approaches allows for the addressing of the random variation of input parameters.
