Structural Dynamics for Civil Engineers - SDOF systems

By Dr. Riya Catherine George   |   IIT Kanpur
The theory of structural dynamics is introduced. The characteristics of Single Degree of Freedom Systems under dynamic loading are discussed in detail. Methods to evaluate the response of SDOF systems under various types of dynamic loading are taught. A brief introduction to Multi -DOF systems is also included.

INTENDED AUDIENCE:  Students of Civil, Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering

PREREQUISITES         :  Needs basic programming skills to solve some assignment questions.

INDUSTRY SUPPORT  :  Companies in the fields of Civil, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
