Response Spectrum Analysis

Response Spectrum Analysis Response spectrum analysis is a method of estimating structural response to small, non-deterministic, transient dynamic events. Examples of such events are earthquakes and tremors. Since the exact time history of the load is not known, time-based analysis is difficult to perform. Peak floor acceleration (PFA) is an important parameter that affects the … Read more

Single Degree of Freedom Systems Analysis (SDOF) – Lecture 3

In this video the Single Degree of Freedom System Analysis (SDOF) is discussed in detail. Single Degree of Freedom System The single-degree-of-freedom system controls the speed through a single, second-order differential equation. Only two variables, position and speed, are required to describe the trajectory of the system. Many structures are ideal as single-degree-of-freedom systems. Understanding … Read more
