In this free online Structural Dynamics for Civil Engineers course, you will be introduced to the world of structural dynamics, where you will explore the behavior of structures under varying or dynamic loads over time. Calculations, illustrations, discussions, examples and assessment questions in this video-based course, provide you with a comprehensive foundation in the subject.

The course begins by introducing you to the fundamentals of structural dynamics. You will then explore the differences between static and dynamic analysis and how to model a dynamic system. The course also teaches you about undamped free vibrations, damped free vibrations, coulomb damped free vibrations, forced vibrations, and vibrations under periodic forces. You will also learn about energy, damping, responses to arbitrary excitations, responses to pulse excitations and more.

This course will be of interest to students of structural dynamics and civil engineering and those looking to broaden their knowledge and skills in the industry. Start this course today and learn more about structural dynamics for Civil Engineers.
