CE 314 Structural Dynamics

This course considers the analysis of structures that are subjected to time-dependent loads from blasts, machine-loads, or seismic effects. The theoretical time-series responses of single and multiple degree of freedom dynamic systems, subjected to pulse, harmonic, and generalized loadings are analyzed by closed-form solutions and/or numerical methods. The course also includes Response Spectrum Analysis, inelastic response, laboratory testing of instrumented model structures, and practical applications using professional software.
