|LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION and EXAMINATIONS||
By the end of the course should have mastered the course content described below and, in particular, the following points:
1. The concept and analytical usefulness of response spectra, which lead to design spectra.
2. The elastic and inelastic earthquake response of building structures and the factors affecting it.
3. The principles of earthquake resistant design so that the student will be able to employ them in design.
