Introduction to Dynamics of Structures
0.0 out of 5 stars
13 Jan 2011 | Learning Objects | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke
The purpose of this experiment is to introduce students to principles in structural dynamics through the use of an instructional shake table. Natural frequencies, mode shapes and damping ratios...
Earthquake-Resistant Bridge Competition for Introductory Engineer Students
This project is intended for entry level engineering students at either the freshman or sophmore level. It is appropriate for all engineering majors and is intended as a potential recruitment tool...
Transfer Function Iteration Algorithm
The transfer function iteration algorithm (implemented in matlab here) is commonly used to control a shake table, facilitating the reproduction of historical earthquake records. It is an iterative...
Demonstration of Lateral-Torsional Coupling in Building Structures
The effect of lateral-torsional coupling in building structures due to non-coincident centers of mass and of rigidity will be demonstrated through a small scale one-storey, one bay by one bay...
Dynamic Behavior of Simple Soil-Structure Systems
The experiment involves constructing a "soil" column that supports one or more single degree of freedom (SDOF) structures.?The soil is modeled using several layers of foam rubber or soft rubber...
K-12 Outreach Activities in Earthquake Engineering
To better understand the way in which civil engineering structures respond to severe earthquakes, students will investigate the seismic behavior of two types of buildings, those made from masonry...
Shaking Table Demonstration of Dynamic Response of Base-Isolated Buildings
The objective of this experiment is to demonstrate the response of base-isolated buildings subjected to dynamic loading. A three-dimensional, one-story building frame will be designed and...
Earthquake Engineering Modules for K-12 Learning
13 Jan 2011 | Learning Objects | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke, Kevin Z Truman
This document documents a teaching module containing a series of lessons that are appropriate for educating K-12 students in fundamental engineering principles. The lessons have been developed...
SDOF Freshman Earthquake Engineering Introduction
13 Jan 2011 | Learning Objects | Contributor(s): NEES EOT
This is a teaching module from the UCIST - NEES partnership on structures for undergraduate students.
This module uses tele-participation and tele-operation for students from remote locations to...
MDOF Design of a Vibration Absorber
UCIST Remote Operation Modules
08 Sep 2010 | Series | Contributor(s): NEES EOT
This series compiles the remote operation modules produced during the UCIST - NEES partnership. Each module contains a lab manual describing how to perform the remote operation and the associated...
Learning Modules for Shake Tables (UCIST)
07 Sep 2010 | Series | Contributor(s): Shirley Dyke
This collection of modules was produced as a result of the UCIST - NEES partnership.
