A concise introduction to structural dynamics and earthquake
"Basic Structural Dynamics "serves as a fundamental introduction
to the topic of structural dynamics. Covering single and
multiple-degree-of-freedom systems while providing an introduction
to earthquake engineering, the book keeps the coverage succinct and
on topic at a level that is appropriate for undergraduate and
graduate students. Through dozens of worked examples based on
actual structures, it also introduces readers to MATLAB, a powerful
software for solving both simple and complex structural dynamics
Conceptually composed of three parts, the book begins with the
basic concepts and dynamic response of single-degree-of-freedom
systems to various excitations. Next, it covers the linear and
nonlinear response of multiple-degree-of-freedom systems to various
excitations. Finally, it deals with linear and nonlinear response
of structures subjected to earthquake ground motions and structural
dynamics-related code provisions for assessing seismic response of
structures. Chapter coverage includes: Single-degree-of-freedom
systemsFree vibration response of SDOF systemsResponse to harmonic
loadingResponse to impulse loadsResponse to arbitrary dynamic
loadingMultiple-degree-of-freedom systemsIntroduction to nonlinear
response of structuresSeismic response of structures
If you're an undergraduate or graduate student or a practicing
structural or mechanical engineer who requires some background on
structural dynamics and the effects of earthquakes on structures,
"Basic Structural Dynamics "will quickly get you up to speed on the
subject without sacrificing important information.
