Structural Dynamics
Academic Program of Industrial Engineering via Bachelor in Industrial Technology Engineering (Plan: 510 - Estudio: 256)

Coordinating teacher: PERNAS SANCHEZ, JESUS

Department assigned to the subject: Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis Department

Type: Electives
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Structural mechanics, elasticity and strength of materials
The design of structures requires always the dynamic analysis. Civil structures, this analysis is essential to prevent the serious effect of earthquakes and wind actions. Structures of transport dynamic analysis is essential since they always have rotary systems that xindex some sort of vibration. Aircraft and space vehicles are subjected to modal analysis to ensure their integrity. In this course, you will enable the student to use the General techniques for the analysis of vibration and the dynamic behavior of structures. Learn how to analyze and control vibrations experienced by lightweight structures. Analyze the vibrations and dynamic actions produced by the effect of wind and earthquakes on structures. This course will allow students to analyze the dynamic response of simple structures such as structures of bars of chassis of cars, robotic arms etc.
