ICYA-4415 Ingeniería Sísmica

The objective of this course is to provide the bases and fundaments so that the student may understand the origin and evolution of the seismic phenomenon, its modeling, the assessment of threat and future effects, as well as the assessment of the effects they may have on the man-made structures, or upon natural formations with regards to the surface of the land. By the end of the course, the student will be able to handle the concepts associated to seismic engineering, create simplified models of seismic threats and understand the bases to apply different methodologies of analysis and design applied in other courses as structure design, structural dynamics, soils´ dynamics or any similar topic. Furthermore, the student will be taught on how to conduct research on seismic engineering through new and more complex models currently used in this field of science.
