Course Description

Wave propagation theories are explained first for 1D, 2D and 3D models. 1D multi-reflection problems of waves are also formulated and explained. Based on these theories, methods for construction of design earthquake ground motions are presented. Soil-structure interaction problems are stated finally for the purpose of developing more rational design methods for building structures.

Grading

Evaluated by the term examination at the end of the semester.

Course Goals

Obtain the knowledge on wave propagation theories and 1D multi-reflection theory of waves. Furthermore obtain the knowledge on construction of design earthquake ground motions and soil-structure interaction.
