Course offerings are missing for current or upcoming semesters.
Headings with content from the Course syllabus FAF3201 (Spring 2020–) are denoted with an asterisk ( )

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • Behaviour of structural elements acted on by dynamic loads
  • Dynamic vehicle-structure interaction
  • Dynamic soil-structure interaction
  • Fundamental signal analysis
  • Field measurements for structural assessment

Intended learning outcomes

The purpose of this course is to give a deeper insight into the theory and methods for the analysis of dynamically loaded structures and demonstrates the possibilities of using modelling and field measurements to access the behaviour of existing structures.
