This course presents the response spectrum method of earthquake response analysis/design of mechanical and electrical equipment and supports. Equipment and supports are modeled as a single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system. No prior knowledge of structural vibration analysis or earthquake analysis is required to understand this course.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • The response spectrum method of earthquake response analysis of equipment
  • Modeling equipment and supports as a damped single-degree-of-freedom system
  • Computation of natural frequency and the period of a SDOF system
  • Calculating maximum acceleration, velocity, displacement and force using the response spectrum method

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
