PHILOSOPHY AND PURPOSE:
This course is an advanced course in structural dynamics for both graduate research students and
advanced consulting engineers. Although the subject by nature is mathematical, wherever possible
a practical presentation of the material is implemented.
ASSESSMENT:
Research projects 30%
Exam

COURSE OUTLINE:
Brief review of Single Degree of Freedom Linear Behaviour
Free vibration. Response to Harmonic loading. Calculation of
damping. Response to impulsive loading and shock spectra.
Response to a general dynamic loading.
Generalized Single Degree of Freedom systems
Linear Behaviour of Multi-degree of Freedom Structures
Modeshapes and frequencies – properties and solution methods.
Modal superposition and response spectrum analysis – modal
combination methods. Floor vibrations, sources and control.
Nonlinear Behaviour. Solution methods mainly restricted to material
nonlinearities. Direct integration and the use of Rayleigh damping.
Frequency and Laplace Domain Analysis
Its use for the implementation of damping and the processing of
data.
Linear and Nonlinear Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction
Dynamics of soil-foundation-structure systems and consequence of
subsoil for structural responses under spatially uniform and nonuniform ground motions.
