Learning objectives
Introduction to problems in earthquake engineering and seismic analysis of structures, as well as training for defining (selection) of input parameters and analysis of structural responses to earthquakes
Learning outcomes
Identification and analysis of problems in seismic analysis of structures. Problem solving in seismic analysis of structures
Introduction to earthquake engineering. Earthquakes: occurrence, hypocenter and epicenter, manifestations on the earth's surface. Earthquake intensity scales. Principles of seismic calculation. Basic principles of design and construction of objects in seismically active areas. Basics of passive and active construction control. Input data analysis. Selection of a constructive system. Principles of calculation of AB construction of buildings on the effect of earthquakes. Specific problems in steel, reinforced concrete and masonry structures in building construction. Review of the chapter on current seismic regulations. Structural modeling in seismic calculation. Current computer programs in the field of earthquake engineering.
Teaching Methods
Classroom lectures, practical exercises, other forms of teaching and consultations. Development of semester and practical assignments in the subject area in consultation with an associate or associates in class. Independent work of the student, with occasional consultations with the teacher or associate, which are not in the term of practice

Evaluation and grading
The condition for obtaining a signature is a completed semester assignment. Knowledge tests are performed in written and oral form. Written tests are performed through 2 colloquia that are held during the semester (middle and end), and oral examination is performed after successful completion of the previously stated program obligations. If a student does not pass one of the colloquia during the semester must take both colloquia in terms of regular exam deadlines. All knowledge tests are considered passed if the candidate earns 51% or more of the points provided by the program for each knowledge test
Specific remarks
The subject is common to all five directions. The subject is elective. The teaching units that the student listens to and takes are formed in accordance with the necessary competencies of the enrolled orientation
