Civil and Environmental Engineering 3344A/B
STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS I
Students are introduced to concepts of structural dynamics and the response of civil engineering structures to time-varying loads, including those due to wind and earthquakes. Topics include: the effects of the mass and damping; random dynamic loads; the design of dynamically sensitive structures that can be approximated as a (generalized) single-degree-of-freedom system.
