Seismic and Dynamic Analysis
Course Details

Course Overview
• Frequency analysis: theory, definition of weights and masses, consistent and diagonalized mass matrix, participating mass, practical applications.

• Simplified seismic analysis: theory, base shear, storeys, storey forces, eccentric accidental forces and masses, center of mass and center of rigidity of structures, period of the structure, load combinations, fictitious horizontal load, seismic deflection and stability of structure, practical applications.

• Spectral seismic analysis: response spectrum, spectral seismic load, damping, calculation method (CQC and SRSS), participation factor, modal results, base shear calibration, interpretation of the sign of the results, practical applications.

• Transient seismic analysis: accelerogram, transient analysis parameters, results as a function of time, practical applications.

• Transient dynamic analysis: transient analysis parameters, sinusoidal dynamic load, general dynamic load, random excitation load, results as a function of time, practical applications.
