DEGREE IN TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE


Subject context 2014-15

Basic Physics of Structures is a basic subject in the degree in Technical Architecture. This course aims firstly to revisit areas of mechanics which may have been covered in pre-university Physics, and to build on this common base the principles of mechanics of solids on which many subsequent modules depend. This includes basic equilibrium, work and energy and the analysis of statically determinate frameworks, leading into a major section on the analysis of stress and strain in two and three dimensions, which includes material failure criteria. The architecture graduate should be able to use the relevant laws of kinematics and dynamics to solve problems of equilibrium of rigid bodies, trusses, and beams. What we do is show problematic situations (open problems relevant to the technical architecture student, both theoretical and practical situations) where we have to think about possible solutions doing research, and not necessarily requiring a numerical answer. This methodology facilitates the autonomy and responsability of the students, the interactivity teacher-student and student-student, and shows the connection between physics and other areas of knowledge.

General evaluation system:

-        Written tests (controls, solving problem reports or exercises, and so on) which will be done individually or in group, throughout the semester for the continuous evaluation of the technical competences of the subject. Students must do at least the 80% of the evaluation activities and earn at least 5 points to 10 to pass this part.

-        It could be evaluated the attendance of classes.

-        Laboratory reports.

-        It could be assessed, if it proceeds, the skills and attitudes showed by the student in the individual or group activities.

-        Final examination, if it proceeds, comprising the whole subject and which contribution to the final mark will not be greater than 50% of the final total mark. Students must earn at least 4 points to 10 to receive an overall grade point average in this course.
