Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course covers dynamics of structures. In particular, the course emphasizes general computer-based formulations and procedures concerning dynamical response phenomena and their mathematical models. Both simplified scalar, and larger discretized models are considered. Finite element models, and other numerical approaches are also covered.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION

 

The present Structural Dynamics course introduces the basic concepts of dynamic loading and the response of structures to such loads, and then uses these concepts to illustrate applications in practical structures.
