Dynamics of Structures

The general purpose of the course is to provide basic knowledge needed to carry out dynamic analysis when structure is subjected to loads depending somehow on the time. Harmonic, pulse and arbitrary loads and action effects are studied. Opportunities for dynamic effects reduction are also considered. Single- and multi-degree of freedom systems are considered by means of effective solutions in time domain, frequency domain and numerical methods. Special attention is paid to seismic analysis. It is intended after completion the course the students to be capable of doing independently dynamic analysis, to evaluate the dynamic behaviour and to control it effectively. Acquired knowledge and professional skills are both very important part of the modern design being recognized as interdisciplinary field.
