CIVL 536 Nonlinear Structural Analysis

3 semester hours

This course will cover nonlinear response and behavior of new and retrofitted buildings to earthquake ground motions. The course will be taught with lectures and projects (Perform 3D), using both prescriptive and performance-based design methodologies. Topics include nonlinear static and dynamic analysis, response spectra, component and system behavior, damping, latest research references for computational modeling.

Corequisite: CIVL 305
