101-0189-00L Seismic Design of Structures II
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2022|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Comment||Number of participants limited to 18. |
All students go on a waiting list. Final registration based on an application letter (information given in the first lecture). Priority will be given to students who completed Seismic Design of Structures I (101-0188-00 G) and are in the primary target group (majoring in Structural Engineering and/or doing project-based coursework for other majors).
|Abstract||In this course the students will learn how to do performance-based seismic design of building structures. This is a project-based course. The students will, in parallel, acquire the basis knowledge about the seismic behavior and non-linear response modeling of structures, and apply this knowledge in a project focused on design of a new building structure.|
|Objective||After successfully completing this course, the students will be able to:|
1. Model and explain the seismic behavior of new structures with moment frame, braced frame and shear wall structural systems.
2. Evaluate the performance of new structures under earthquake loading using modern risk-informed performance assessment methods and analysis tools.
3. Use the knowledge of nonlinear dynamic response of structures to interpret the design code provisions and apply it in seismic design of structural systems.
4. Successfully design such systems to achieve the performance objectives stipulated by the design codes
|Content||This course completes the series of courses on dynamic analysis and seismic design of structures at ETHZ. Building on the material covered in Structural Dynamics and Seismic Design of Structures I, the following advanced topics will be covered in this course: 1) behavior and non-linear response modeling of structural systems under earthquake excitation; 2) displacement-based inelastic design of new building structures; 3) seismic design of moment frame, braced frame and shear wall structures; These topics will be discussed from the standpoint of risk-informed performance-based seismic design.|
|Lecture notes||Moodle is used to manage the course learning material. These include the lecture presentations, additional reading, exercise problems and solutions, example models of structures in OpenSees system for earthquake engineering simulation, and example designs. Lectures are streamed and recorded using the ETH Video Portal.|

|Prerequisites / Notice||ETH Seismic Design of Structures I course, or equivalent. Students are expected to understand the seismological nature of earthquakes, to characterize the ground motion excitation, to analyze the response of elastic single- and multiple-degree-of-freedom systems to earthquake excitation, to use the concept of response and design spectrum, to compute the equivalent seismic loads on simple structures, and to perform code-based seismic design of simple structures. Familiarity with structural analysis software, such as SAP2000 or OpenSees, and general-purpose software, such as Python and Matlab, is expected.|
