DEP 518E - Seismic Structural Response Control of Buildings

Course Objectives

1) To transfer current earthquake-resistant design approaches and the design principles to students
2) To provide the students application oriented skills by the new approaches and the design principles.

Course Description

Introduction to the dynamic behavior characteristics of buildings. Calculating and understanding the Response Spectra. Seismic energy concept. Passive structural control methods. Types and operating mechanism of energy dissipating dampers and energy transfer devices. Structural inherent damping, metallic, friction, viscous and visco-elastic dampers. Seismic isolation and role of dampers/damping. Effects of energy dissipation dampers to structural seismic behavior. Damper design and distribution in a building. Retrofitting existing buildings with dampers.
