9780470879399: Basic Structural Dynamics

Contemporary man-machine interfaces are increasingly characterized by multimodality, nonintrusiveness, context-sensitivity, adaptivity, and teleoperability. The implementation of such properties relies on novel techniques in fields such as, e.g., computer vision, speech technology, trainable classifiers, robotics, and virtual reality. This book puts special emphasis on technological aspects of advanced interface implementation. Furthermore, it focuses on interface design and usability. For readers with a background in engineering and computer science, most chapters offer design guidelines and case studies, as well as a description of the functioning and limitations of the algorithms required for implementation. In addition, complementary code examples in C++ are given where appropriate. As a special feature, the book is accompanied by two easy-to-handle software development environments, which offer access to extensive public domain software for computer vision, classification, and virtual reality. These environments also provide real-time access to peripheral components like, e.g., webcams or microphones, enabling hands-on experimentation and testing.

Product Description:

This book is intended as a basic introduction to the topic of structural dynamics for undergraduate civil and structural engineering students. Covering single and multiple degree of freedom systems while providing an introduction to earthquake engineering, this book keeps the coverage succinct and on topic at a level appropriate for non–specialist undergraduate and graduate students. Through dozens of worked examples based on actual structures, it also introduce the students to NONLIN, a matrix analysis software package.

From the Back Cover:

A concise introduction to structural dynamics and earthquake engineering

Basic Structural Dynamics serves as a fundamental introduction to the topic of structural dynamics. Covering single and multiple–degree–of–freedom systems while providing an introduction to earthquake engineering, the book keeps the coverage succinct and on topic at a level that is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students. Through dozens of worked examples based on actual structures, it also introduces readers to MATLAB, a powerful software for solving both simple and complex structural dynamics problems.

Conceptually composed of three parts, the book begins with the basic concepts and dynamic response of single–degree–of–freedom systems to various excitations. Next, it covers the linear and nonlinear response of multiple–degree–of–freedom systems to various excitations. Finally, it deals with linear and nonlinear response of structures subjected to earthquake ground motions and structural dynamics–related code provisions for assessing seismic response of structures. Chapter coverage includes:

  • Single–degree–of–freedom systems
  • Free vibration response of SDOF systems
  • Response to harmonic loading
  • Response to impulse loads
  • Response to arbitrary dynamic loading
  • Multiple–degree–of–freedom systems
  • Introduction to nonlinear response of structures
  • Seismic response of structures

If you′re an undergraduate or graduate student or a practicing structural or mechanical engineer who requires some background on structural dynamics and the effects of earthquakes on structures, Basic Structural Dynamics will quickly get you up to speed on the subject without sacrificing important information.
