Analysis of Structural Response

  • Sergei V. Petinov
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 251)


This chapter presents the principles of dynamic analysis of structures subjected to the variation in time service loading. To illustrate, the single-degree-of-freedom behavior under cyclic excitation in the range of frequencies is described as introductory to dynamic analysis of structures. The principles of spectral analysis and evaluation of response of dynamic structures to spectral excitation (Wiener–Khinchin theorem) are discussed.
