Outline and Purpose of the Course 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.
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.
