1. INTRODUCTION
DEGREE OF FREEDOM
- The representation of the displacements of a given system with distributed
mass in terms of a finite number of displacements allows to greatly simply
the dynamic problem because inertial forces would develop only at these
points.
- The number of displacement components that must be taken into account to
represent the effects of all significant inertial forces of a system is known as the
number of degrees of freedom of the system (DOF).

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

MASS-SPRING-DAMPER SYSTEM
- The system can be seen as the combination of three components: the
stiffness component, the damping component and the mass component.

p (t ) = f s + f d + f I

The equation of motion is now given by:

an oscillation at the

## Resonant frequency is the forcing frequency at which the dynamic

amplification of the displacement is maximum.

## 4. RESPONSE OF SDOF SYSTEMS TO ARBITRARY EXCITATIONS

In the differential equation of motion,
p(t) is an arbitrary deterministic excitation:

## p(t) can be interpreted as a sequence of impulses of infinitesimal duration and

the response of the system to p(t) will be the sum of the responses to individual
impulses (this hypothesis limits this procedure to linear elastic systems).

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

The response of the system at time t is the sum of the responses to all impulses
up to that time.

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

A unit impulse causes free vibration to SDOF systems due to the initial
displacement and velocity. The response is given by:

## Considering the unit impulse response function, the Duhamels integral is

used to sum the responses to all impulses.

The Duhamels integral is valid only for linear systems because it is based on
the principle of superposition.
The evaluation of the integral can be based on analytical (if p is a simple
function) or numerical methods (if p is a complicated function).

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

TIME-STEPPING METHODS
The analytical solution is usually not possible if the excitation varies arbitrarily
with time or if the system is non-linear. The above problems can be solved by
numerical time-stepping methods for integration of differential equations.

The response is determined at the discrete time instants ti (time i). All values are
assumed to be known at time i. The numerical procedures allow to determine
the response quantities at the time ti+1 satisfying the equation

## The numerical procedures to be implemented can be divided into 2 main

categories: explicit methods (e.g. Central difference method) and implicit
methods (e.g. Newmarks method).

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

NEWMARKS METHOD
The Newmarks method assumes a variation of the acceleration over the time
step [ ti ; ti+1 ].
This variation is controlled by the parameters and which also control the
stability and accuracy of the method. Typically:
The equations of the Newmarks method read

## 4. RESPONSE OF SDOF SYSTEMS TO EARTHQUAKES

The equation of motion of a SDOF system subjected to an earthquake reads

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

RESPONSE SPECTRUM
The peak response of all possible linear SDOF systems to a given earthquake
can be represented in a response spectrum.

## ETCECCPB-UPC Introduction to Structural Dynamics

RESPONSE SPECTRUM
The plot of the spectral displacement Sd against the period Tn provides the
displacement response spectrum.
The plot of the spectral acceleration Sa against the period Tn provides the
acceleration response spectrum.

## It is also possible to define a pseudo-spectral velocity in the form

There is a direct relationship among pseudo-spectral acceleration, pseudospectral velocity and real spectral displacement:

## In practice, the pseudo-spectral velocity and pseudo-spectral acceleration are

used instead of the real spectral velocity an spectral acceleration, and no
reference is made to the pseudo characteristic.

## 1. Definition of the ground acceleration

2. Selection of the parameters Tn and of the SDOF system
3. Computation of the response u(t) of the system due to the ground motion
(e.g. using the Duhamel integral or a numerical method)
4. Determination of the peak value of the response Sd
5. Computation of Sv and Sa as a function of Sd
6. Repetition of steps 2 to 5 for different values of Tn and
7. Plotting of the response spectrum

## ELASTIC RESPONSE SPECTRUM

The elastic response spectrum it is intended for the design of new structures or
for the seismic safety evaluation of existing structures, to resist future
earthquakes. The definition of the elastic design spectrum parameters should
be based on a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis.

## The short-period portion of the spectrum is dominated by the near-field

earthquake, the long-period portion of the spectrum is dominated by the far-field
earthquake.
