Teaching Methods

The theoretical contents of the curricular unit will be presented through lectures illustrated whenever possible with practical cases. Students are encouraged to apply the competences acquired through practical activities, including the analysis of case studies and exercises.

Learning Outcomes

- Understand the fundamental concepts related to centers of mass and moments of inertia.
- To assimilate concepts essential for evaluating the dynamic response of structures.
- Understand how the dynamic analysis is applied to the seismic analysis of structures.
