CE802 Matrix Structural Analysis

Course Objectives

A detailed review of the basics in structural dynamics is provided. The course begins with a basic overview of singledegree and multidegree of freedom structural dynamics. The earthquake engineering section of the class touches upon pertinent application of structural dynamics. The course will provide participants with an understanding of the fundamental factors controlling the response of structures.
