Unit Code: CEB810

Unit Name: Dynamics of Structures

Description: When engineers design complex structures, an understanding of structural dynamics is important in the design and retrofit of structures to withstand severe dynamic loading from earthquakes, hurricanes, and strong winds, or to identify the occurrence and location of damage within an existing structure. This course will help you to understand the theory of dynamic response of structures with emphasis on physical insight into the analytical procedures and with particular application to earthquake engineering where the earthquake engineering component considers seismic analysis methods, earthquake resistant design philosophy and includes elements of engineering seismology. You will gain experience in Dynamic response of a low rise composite framed structure via a group project. You will be divided into groups of three or four. Each group will engage in two assessment tasks.
