Course Objective

It is now accepted that every structural engineering major should have had a minimum introduction to dynamics of structures to serve as a prelude to more advanced courses in earthquake engineering, blast-resistant design, random vibrations and wind engineering. This course is designed to serve that purpose. Its only requirement is the customary exposure to an introductory course on dynamics. It is intended to serve as the introduction to the course on earthquake engineering and other related topics...

Course Content

Dynamic disturbances. Single and multi degree of freedom systems. Continuous systems. Equations of motion. Energy methods in structural dynamics. Application in structural design. Earthquake response of structures.
