CEME 7003 - Wind and Earthquake Engineering

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2022

The course provides students with an understanding on the behaviour of structures under wind and earthquake loads. Students will learn concepts and techniques for analysing dynamic response of structures subjected to these loadings, and the aspects of structural design with regard to wind and earthquake loads. On the completion of the course, students will develop: (1) an understanding of dynamic responses of structures in related to dynamic loads with emphasis on wind and earthquake effect, (2) ability to assess the response of structures subjected to wind and earthquake loads, and (3) skills in the analysis and design of structures subjected to wind and earthquake loads using Australian Standards.
