Course description and aims

This lecture addresses several introductory and intermediate topics in dynamic behavior of structural systems. Structures are idealized as single-degree of freedom (SDOF) or multi-degree of freedom (MDOF) systems. Special attention is given to seismic topics including earthquake response history analysis and estimation of maximum response by response spectrum analysis.

Student learning outcomes

Main topics are deriving of the equation of motion of SDOF and MDOF, making of vibration analysis program, evaluation of the response.

Keywords

Time history response analysis,SDOF, MDOF, Response spectrum

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
