This course aims at giving students an understanding of the seismic waves as well as dynamic behaviour of structures and the means of predicting their response to the effects of dynamic excitations, especially earthquakes. Subsequently, the basic principles of structural earthquake engineering will be presented, including different types of seismic resisting systems and their behaviour, the effects of structural properties such as regularity and symmetry on seismic response, and the roles of ductility, damping and isolation in reducing earthquake induced damage. The application of NZ standards for seismic loading is also explained.
