Summary

This course deals with the nonlinear modelling and analysis of structures when subjected to monotonic, cyclic, and dynamic loadings, focusing in particular on the seismic response of structures. It introduces solution methods for nonlinear static and dynamic problems.

Content

The course is based on assignments in which students will model structures tested in the laboratory and compare numerical results to experimental results.

 

Keywords
