Dynamics of Structures - 3rd edition

Dynamics of Structures (ISBN10: 013156174X; ISBN13: 9780131561748)
ISBN13: 978-0131561748
ISBN10: 013156174X

Summary: Designed for senior-level and graduate courses in Dynamics of Structures and Earthquake Engineering. The text includes many topics encompassing the theory of structural dynamics and the application of this theory regarding earthquake analysis, response, and design of structures. No prior knowledge of structural dynamics is assumed and the manner of presentation is sufficiently detailed and integrated, to make the book suitable for self-study by students and professional
engineers.

Features
  • Section on application of the inelastic design spectrum to structural design-For allowable ductility, seismic evaluation of existing structures, and displacement-based structural design.
  • Examples on dynamics of bridges and their earthquake response.
  • Incorporation of three building codes and inclusion of the Eurocode.
  • Theory of dynamic response of structures-Presented in a manner that emphasizes physical insight into the analytical procedures.
  • Structural dynamics theory-Applied to conduct parametric studies that bring out several fundamental issues in the earthquake response and design of multistory buildings.
  • Analytical procedures-Illustrated by over 100 worked out examples.
  • Over 400 figures carefully designed and executed to be pedagogically effective
  • Photographs of structures and their responses recorded during earthquakes-Included to relate the presentation to the real world.
