101-0117-00LTheory of Structures III3 credits2GB. Stojadinovic
AbstractThis course focuses on the axial, shear, bending and torsion load-deformation response of continuous elastic prismatic structural elements such as rods, beams, shear walls, frames, arches, cables and rings. Additional special topics, such as the behavior of inelastic prismatic structural elements or the behavior of planar structural elements and structures, may be addressed time-permitting.
ObjectiveAfter passing this course students will be able to:
1. Explain the equilibrium of continuous structural elements.
2. Formulate mechanical models of continuous prismatic structural elements.
3. Analyze the axial, shear, bending and torsion load-deformation response of prismatic structural elements and structures assembled using these elements.
4. Determine the state of forces and deformations in rods, beams, frame structures, arches, cables and rings under combined mechanical and thermal loading.
5. Use the theory of continuous structures to design structures and understand the basis for structural design code provisions.
ContentThis is the third course in the ETH series on theory of structures. Building on the material covered in previous courses, this course focuses on the axial, shear, bending and torsion load-deformation response of continuous elastic prismatic structural elements such as rods, beams, shear walls, frames, arches, cables and rings. Additional special topics, such as the behavior of inelastic prismatic structural elements or the behavior of planar structural elements and structures may be addressed if time permits. The course provides the theoretical background and engineering guidelines for practical structural analysis of modern structures.
Lecture notesElectronic copies of the learning material will be uploaded to ILIAS and available through myStudies. The learning material includes the lecture presentations, additional reading, and exercise problems and solutions. Lectures are streamed live and recorded on the ETH Video Portal.

101-0189-00LSeismic Design of Structures II3 credits2GB. Stojadinovic
AbstractThe following topics are covered: behavior and non-linear response of structural systems under earthquake excitation; seismic behavior and design of moment frame, braced frame, shear wall and masonry structures; fundamentals of seismic response modification; and assessment and retrofit of existing buildings. They are discussed in the framework of risk-informed performance-based seismic design.
ObjectiveAfter successfully completing this course the students will be able to:
1. Use the knowledge of nonlinear dynamic response of structures to interpret the design code provisions and apply them in seismic design of structural systems.
2. Explain the seismic behavior of moment frame, braced frame and shear wall structural systems and successfully design such systems to achieve the performance objectives stipulated by the design codes.
3. Determine the performance of structures under earthquake loading using modern risk-informed performance assessment methods and analysis tools.
ContentThis course completes the series of two courses on seismic design of structures at ETHZ. Building on the material covered in Seismic Design of Structures I, the following advanced topics will be covered in this course: 1) behavior and non-linear response of structural systems under earthquake excitation; 2) seismic behavior and design of moment frame, braced frame and shear wall structures; 3) fundamentals of seismic response modification; and 4) assessment and retrofit of existing buildings. These topics will be discussed from the standpoint of risk-informed performance-based design.
