Transportation works and structures

Lecturer(s): Eric VINCENS
Course ⋅ 12 hStudy ⋅ 8 h


Transportation facilities are characterised by a long linear of works in an environment often more aggressive than for buildings or by non-standard geometries requiring technological solutions which are specific to them.

Among them, we can cite works of art, railway infrastructures as well as tunnels. Here, the main principles of design and monitoring of these structures will be given to fully understand the issues specific to their mechanical behavior and their durability. The speakers are all engineers, specialists in the field.
