## Course Title : Seismic Engineering Exercise

Code 10F263 Master and Doctor Course 2nd term Mon 4th C1-192 2 No Restriction Lecture and Exercise Japanese Sawada, Takahashi, Goto

### Course Description

This course provides the knowledge of simulation methods for earthquake engineering. Small groups of students are exercised in the prediction of ground motion generated by a specified seismic fault and the response analysis of structure selected by themselves considering soil-structure interaction.

Based on the performance during the course (including homework) and the results of presentation and reports.

### Course Goals

At the end of this course, students will be required to have a good understanding of: - Prediction of ground motion generated by a specified seismic fault - Dynamic response analysis of structures and foundation (linear/nonlinear)
