EGR 452 - Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering


Units: 3
When Offered: Spring
The course will focus on the analysis of the dynamic response of structural systems. Students will be introduced to the basic concepts of seismology and structural dynamics including the evaluation of structural response to earthquake motions. We will also discuss the seismic design procedure in building codes used in the United States. This will enable students to have a better understanding of dynamic behavior of structural systems under earthquakes. Students will also use their knowledge of seismic design to prepare the Professional Engineer’s (PE) examination, which is a mandatory section in California.
Grade Type: Letter Grade
Prerequisite(s): EGR 351  and 343
