Analysis of Industrial Structures
Study: Máster in Structural Engineering of Industrial Constructions (373)


Department assigned to the subject: Department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Elasticity, Strength of materials, and theory of structures.
The competences that the student acquires are the following: - Get and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in a research context. - Students will know how to apply the knowledge acquired and develop their ability to solve problems in new environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study. - That students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous. - Be able to know the aspects and techniques of analytical and computational calculation methods to project, calculate and design structures and plants in the field of industrial construction. - Ability to design and calculate conventional and advanced structural solutions in industrial plants. - Ability to use computational structural calculation systems, digitization of structures, and industrial constructions. - Ability to recognise and characterise actions on the ground, develop the design of foundations and underground structures, within the general framework of the structural analysis. Students who successfully pass the subject achieve the following learning outcomes: 1. Knowledge to design and analyse complex structures subjeted to a variety of loading conditions using a computer tool. 2. Ability to evaluate the behaviour of a structure and the veracity of the results obtained from a computational calculation.
