The students shall attain the qualifications to apply realistic models of dynamically excited engineering structures and of the excitation mechanism including simplified, stochastic excitation models for wind or earthquake impacts, and to analyse the structural response
The lecture recapitulates and deepens the methodology of the calculation of single- and multi-degree-of-freedom oscillations of structures. Dynamical analyses are based on simplified models of structures and on the application of modal analysis. A second focus is put on the modelling and the computation of random vibrations of structures. The spectral method for a stationary, broad-banded excitation mechanism like wind excitation is introduced. The response spectrum method for the treatment of earthquake excitations is applied. In addition to the procedures in the frequency domain numerical representations of stochastic processes in time domain are explained.
The contents of the lecture are deepend during the excercises and through seminar papers performed by the students. The presentation of related results through students is part of the modul.
