Architecture 7210 is a graduate course investigating the influence of time-varying
loads such as wind and earthquakes on structural and architectural design. The
course includes fundamentals of structural vibrations, plus the physical principles
underlying wind flow and seismic phenomena, and their influence at the scale
of the region, city, site, building, and details. The course makes extensive
use of three dimensional computer-based structural analysis in understanding
dynamic phenomena and their interaction with static loads due to gravity.
