Code

CNM13


Level

7


Credit rating

20 CAT points


Pre-requisites

CNM12


Type of module

Delivered over one semester


Aims

To develop an understanding on the seismic response of structures and the specification of seismic loads for design


Learning outcomes/objectives

By the end of this module the student should be able to:

specify the seismic input for dynamic analysis both in time and frequency domain;

account for the reduction of seismic forces to for inelastic response;

specify static equivalent seismic loads for practical seismic design;

build analytical building models to account for the three dimensional response of earthquake resistant structures including seismic torsion.


Content

Engineering dynamics for seismic design;

time-history inelastic response of SDOF systems;

hysteretic response and equivalent viscous damping;

seismic force reduction factor and design spectrum accounting for seismic design;

Housner spectrum intensity and the scaling of natural accelerograms to define seismic input for time-history analysis;

computer-aided time history analysis of shear buildings using modal superposition; lateral loading for seismic design according to the Eurocode;

design spectrum and behaviour factor; equivalent static analysis;

torsional effects in building plan;

bidirectional effects;

computer-aided three-dimensional analysis of earthquake resistant structures;

General principles of seismic design;

observation of earthquake damage;

effects of structure configuration on seismic response;

seismic response of reinforced concrete members;

capacity design principles in the design of reinforced concrete members.


Teaching and learning strategies

Lectures, handouts, OHP presentations. Examples of damage to real structures due to strong earthquakes. Examples laboratory tests of structural members under cyclic loading to simulate seismic response. Use of the computer program SAP2000 (student version) for the threedimensional analysis of earthquake resistant structures.
