Stochastic Structural Dynamics

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Science Bangalore via YouTube


Instructor: Prof. C. S. Manohar, Department of Civil Engineering, IISc Bangalore.

The objective of this course is to develop methods for the analysis of structures subjected to dynamic loads which are random in nature. Structures under the action of wind or earthquake loads are typical of such problems. The course introduces the application of probability, random variables and random processes to model uncertainties in dynamic loads. The response analysis considers the question of propagation of uncertainties in the inputs to the response variables of interest and also considers questions on the reliability of vibrating systems under dynamic loads. The course mainly deals with linear time invariant systems. A brief introduction to random vibration analysis of nonlinear systems is also provided. Solution strategies include analytical techniques and Monte Carlo simulation procedures.
