Course description and aims

The instructor provides information on structural damage caused by ground shaking and geohazards, basic theory regarding the dynamic response of soils and buildings and their relation to seismic design.
Students will learn basic theory regarding the dynamic response of single- and multi-degree-of-freedom systems as well as of soils, seismic design of buildings and foundations including isolation and vibration control and retrofits, as well as soil liquefaction and remedial measures.

Student learning outcomes
