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.
