LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject will be delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials both of which feature the use of programming with EXCEL spreadsheets for analysis purposes. In addition, students will undertake experiments to reinforce materials covered in the lectures and also a design exercise which involves applying the learnt techniques in solving structural design/evaluation problems that are likely to be encountered in practice.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students will have access to lecture slides.
The recommended text is Anil K. Chopra (2012) Dynamics of Structures: Theory and Applications to Earthquake Engineering (4th Edition). Pearson/Prentice Hall.
Other resources include selected journal publications; EXCEL spreadsheets showing examples of numerical simulations and Strand7 computational package.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
A practising specialist in the field of structural dynamics will contribute to the teaching of the subject and give advice on the assignment exercises.
