Principles of Design and Analysis for Multiple Hazards: Vibration, Earthquake, Wind, and Blast
Get a detailed review of the basic principles of structural dynamics, vibrations, earthquake resistant design, blast and wind engineering. Begin with single-degree and multi-degree of freedom structural dynamics. Touch upon pertinent information from engineering seismology, geotechnical engineering, blast engineering, wind engineering, risk and reliability theory and architecture in addition to advanced topics related to the dynamic and impulsive response, analysis, design, and retrofit of structures. Focus on buildings, bridges, industrial facilities, and other types of structures that may, in the event of a major extreme event, be forced to respond into the inelastic range. Understand fundamental factors controlling the response of structures. Fundamentals of multi-hazard design, and application of the International Building Code and other relevant design guidelines, will be presented through several detailed example problems.
