Syllabus
Prerequisites: Solid Mechanics, Numerical Methods, Solid Mechanics 2, Structural Mechanics
Target skills and knowledge: Analysis of the dynamic/seismic behaviour of elements and structures.
Comprehension and use of modern Recommendations for the development of seismic design and analyses.
Examination methods: Mid-term tests, oral/written exam and practical test (project)
Course unit contents: Examples of dynamic forces, procedures of dynamic analysis, dynamic analysis of 1 dof systems.
Response in free vibrations: undamped and damped free vibrations, critical damping.
Response to harmonic loads: undamped and damped systems, resonance.
Vibrations isolation.
Damping ratio.
Response to impulsive loads: sinusoidal-type impulse, step-wise impulse.
Examples and exercises.
Response spectra.
Response to generic dynamic loads: Duhamel and convolution integrals. Numerical evaluation of Duhamel integral for an undamped system: simple summation, trapezoidal rule, Sympson. Damped systems.
Fourier integral and transform.
response spectra with base motion.
Numerical solution of the motion equations for non-linear systems. Step-by-step numerical methods.
Mdof systems. Modal analysis: the modal superposition method, damping matrix (Rayleigh damping, modal damping), seismic excitation, example.

Applications of static and dynamic analysis according to the Italian Recommendations. Ductility of structural elements, structural ductility, elastic-plastic oscillator.
Directional effect of the seismic action, approach to Technical Recommendations from OPC 3274, approach to Eurocode 8
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: To give the students the instruments for solving, via mathematical and numerical models, transient and dynamic (non-) linear problems for elements and structures.
