Total Teaching Hours for Semester:45
No of Lecture Hours/Week:3
Max Marks:100
Credits:3

Course Objectives/Course Description

 

All structures, including critical civil infrastructure facilities like bridges and highways, deteriorate with time due to various reasons including fatigue failure caused by repetitive traffic loads, effects of environmental conditions, and extreme events such as an earthquake. This requires not just routine or critical-event based inspections (such as an earthquake), but rather a means of continuous monitoring of a structure to provide an assessment of changes as a function of time and an early warning of an unsafe condition using real-time data. Thus, the health monitoring of structures has been a hot research topic of structural engineering in recent years. Keeping this in mind, the course objectives are framed such that, students will be able to :

·         Learn the fundamentals of structural health monitoring,

·         Study the various vibration-based techniques for structural health monitoring

·         Gain knowledge of the various methods for repair of structures

Learning Outcome

Studentswill be ableto

CO1:Diagnose the distress in the structure by understanding the causes and factors (L3)

CO2:Assess the healthofstructureusingstatic field methods(L3)

CO3:Assess the health of structure using dynamic field tests(L4)

CO4:Suggest repairs and rehabilitation measures of the structure(L4)
