CIVE 616 Nonlinear Structural Analysis for Buildings (4 credits)

Offered by: Civil Engineering (Faculty of Engineering)

Administered by: Graduate Studies


Civil Engineering : Methods of geometric and material nonlinear static and dynamic analysis, cumulative damage effects, concentrated and distributed plasticity models, pushover analysis, response modification and performance-based design. The class integrates state-of-the-art simulation models and methods with physical experimentation of structural components and energy dissipation devices for nonlinear analysis and evaluation of buildings.

Terms: This course is not scheduled for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Instructors: There are no professors associated with this course for the 2013-2014 academic year.

  • Prerequisite: Permission of instructor
