Dynamic Response of Civil Engineering Constructions



This course is to introduce the basic concepts and techniques for structural dynamics and their practical applications to structural engineering. Students will learn the response of single degree of freedom (SDOF) and multi degree of freedom (MDOF) systems due to free vibration and forced (harmonic, periodic, arbitrary, pulse) vibration, and the earthquake response of elastic and inelastic buildings. Modal analysis, response spectrum analysis, and time-stepping methods for structural systems will be briefly covered.
