Civil and Environmental Engineering（Comprehensive Abilities）・Ability to discover problems Understanding of the following articles is class objectives.1. How to analyze relatively complex structural systems by the FEM ((C) ability to understand the components of problems, (D) ability to solve problems)2. The fundamentals of bridge engineering as one the essential infrastructures of road engineering ((C) ability to understand the components of problems, (D) ability to solve problems) Lesson 1: Conceptual design of structural systems (stages of a structural design, establishing the criteria, design process, conceptualization)Lesson 2: Review of structural theory (equilibrium equations, compatibility equations, constitutive equations, displacement method)Lesson 3: An introduction to the FEM (1D BVPs, strong form and weak form, weighted-residual method)Lesson 4: The FEM for Solid Mechanics Problems (strong form and weak form, isoparametric elements, Gauss integration scheme, stress computation)Lesson 5: Structural modeling (available computer programs, selection of modeling methodology, geometry, material and section properties, boundary conditions, loads)Lesson 6: Dynamic analysis of structural systems (single degree of freedom systems, multi-degree of freedom systems, response spectrum analysis)Lesson 7: Seismic random response analysis (basic concepts, seismic random excitations, pseudo excitation method for the structure random vibration analysis)Lesson 8: Midterm examLesson 9: Nonlinear analysis (analysis classification and general guidelines, geometric nonlinearity formulation, material nonlinearity formulations, nonlinear section analysis)Lesson 10: Nonlinear analysis (nonlinear frame analysis, displacement-based seismic design, static push-over analysis)Lesson 11: Bridge engineering in Japan (design philosophy and loads, materials, girder bridges, arch bridges)Lesson 12: Bridge engineering in Japan (truss bridges, suspension bridges, cable-stayed bridges)Lesson 13: Seismic design practice in Japan (history of earthquake damage and development of seismic design methods, performance-based design specifications, basic principle of seismic design)Lesson 14: Seismic design practice in Japan (design ground motions, seismic performance verification, design methods, design seismic force, ductility design of reinforced concrete and steel piers)Lesson 15: Seismic design practice in Japan (seismic isolation design, design of foundations, design against soil liquefaction and liquefaction-induced lateral spreading, design of bearing supports)Lesson 16: Final exam B. Bakht, A. Mufti (2015), Bridges, Analysis, Design, Structural Health Monitoring, and Rehabilitation, Second Edition, Springer International Publishing Switzerland, ISBN 978-3-319-17843-1 Textbook, Handouts Reviewing each lesson Grading will be based on a written midterm exam (50%) and a written final exam (50%). Credits will be given to students who get a score over 60%. Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
