Earthquake Analysis and Design of Simple Structures and Equipment: Response Spectrum Method
This online engineering PDH course presents the response spectrum method of earthquake response analysis of simple structures and mechanical/electrical equipment. The method presented in this course is widely used and is applicable to any structure or equipment that can be modeled as a single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system. The method is quick and easy to use, and requires no computer software.
This 1 PDH online course is intended for civil and mechanical engineers interested in gaining an understanding of the response spectrum method of earthquake response analysis. No prior knowledge of structural vibration analysis or earthquake analysis is required to understand this course.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Computing the natural frequency of simple structures (e.g. one-story buildings)
- Computing the natural frequency of mechanical/electrical equipment
- Understanding earthquake response spectra
- Computing displacement, velocity, acceleration and/or forces due to earthquakes
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the document titled "Earthquake Analysis and Design of Simple Structures and Equipment: Response Spectrum Method".
