Focussing on fundamentals of structural dynamics required for earthquake resistant design, the book initiates by mentioning equations of motion followed by free and forced vibrations of SDF and MDF systems. Relevant impulse, pulse and sinusoidal inputs obtained by directly solving the differential equations of motion and Duhammel’s integral are illustrated. Responses of a multistory building subjected to earthquake ground motion by direct integration as well as mode superposition are explained including inelastic hysteretic seismic behaviour of tall buildings with ductility of RC structures. Solutions of building frames using software like ETABS and STAAD are explained using Octave/Scilab.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
