This book addresses the dynamic behaviour of a variety of structures under loading actions, such as wind storms and earthquakes. The book can be used to help with the prediction of the dynamic response of structures indicated by a unified systems approach, and compares this method with the results of full-scale studies of the in-service performance
The Dynamic Performance of Structures. Design Requirements. Characterization of Forces and Structures by Frequency Response Functions. Mode Shapes. Nodal Characteristics and Influence Lines. A Unifying Theme. Structural Performance. Damping. Synthesis. Appendices. Index.
