Earthquake Engineering

CIE619: Earthquake Engineering

The focus of this course is the earthquake-resistant design of structures and it builds on the first graduate course in structural dynamics, CIE 519. Topics covered in the course include an introduction to mechanics of earthquakes and characteristics of the strong ground motions; responses of structures and mechanical behavior of structural elements under seismic loadings; and techniques to analyze the linear and nonlinear dynamic responses of structures. Selected research topics and applications of basic principles to the design of buildings are addressed. LEC. Prerequisites: CIE 519, CIE 515, and CIE 428 (or equivalents.)
