Brief Contents Description and Course Syllabus 
It is commonly accepted that every structural engineering major should have a minimum introduction to dynamics of structures to serve as a prelude to more advanced courses in earthquake engineering, blast-resistant design, random vibrations and wind engineering. This course is designed to serve this purpose. It is a basic graduate level course which studies the vibration characteristics and dynamic response of structural systems to dynamic excitations generated by earthquakes, wind, impact and blast. 

By the end of the course, the student is expected to have a basic understanding of:
• Discrete single-degree, multi-degree and continuous vibratory systems,
• Free and forced vibration response of discrete and continuous systems,
• Applications in structural design.

The only requirement for this course is a customary exposure to an introductory course on dynamics, such as the basic undergraduate course: Dynamics of Rigid Bodies. The knowledge of basic mathematics, particularly the solution differential equations and numerical methods are also used extensively in this course.
