About this courseSkip About this course
Construction Science is the subject that formulates theoretical models and interprets the results of experiments to describe the static and dynamic behaviour of resistant elements and materials in structures exposed to steady or variable mechanical stress or heat. Based on the general principles of continuum mechanics and hypotheses drawn from experimental evidence, Construction Science sets out to formulate methodological approaches and set down procedures - analytical, numerical and experimental - that can model the real behaviour of structural materials and elements and measure how safe they are in relation to the forces applied. In this sense, the subject brings together and synthesises the principles of Continuum Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Structural Mechanics, and Resistance of Materials, and can be applied not only in traditional sectors like Engineering, but also in more advanced areas of Biology and Biomechanics. Tools and procedures useful for testing these 1D structures are also introduced.
