DEP 510E - Introduction to Earthquake Engineering

Course Objectives

1. To understand the basic concepts of earthquake engineering.
2. To understand basic structural response characteristics like stiffness, strength, ductility, overstrength, damping, response spectrum and to be able to learn the relations between these concepts.
3. To understand the constitutive behaviors of materials and sections.
4. To learn different analyses methodologies to capture the seismic response of building type structures.
5. To learn the seismic behavior of conventional and innovative structural systems.
