Gestion des risques structure
Les acquis de cet enseignement sont indispensables à la bonne compréhension du cours de béton armé et précontraint.
The Eurocode system has been established to ensure safety, serviceability, and durability of structures. EN 1990 “Basis of Structural Design” – the head code – introduces concepts for achieving these goals, presenting the notion of reliability management and recognizing the importance of a safe while economic structure. According to his / her expertise, a designer can select the appropriate levels of reliability. This is a general approach that provides space for improvements and optimizations from further research in the field of structural engineering.
The objective of this short course is twofold:
The basic notions which EN 1990 code is built on are introduced to highlight the general philosophy of the Eurocode system.
The main concepts of plasticity and yield design are introduced to illustrate how a design can accommodate non.elastic behaviors.
After this course, students will be able to:
Understand the fundamental socio.economic goals of the Eurocode system
Understand the basic scientific and technical concepts derived in the Eurocode system
Design structures with non.elastic behaviors
Manage reliability in a structural design process
Define where and when further research in structural engineering is key for maintaining the Eurocode system.
