Prerequisiti
Knowledge of the concepts given within the courses of Rational Mechanics and Structural Mechanics.
Obiettivi formativi
The course aims to advance the knowledge and understanding of the mathematical and physical foundations of continuum mechanics of solids and to enhance the ability to apply its principles to solve structural engineering problems.
