**Course requirements:**

- Regular attendance
- Small Projects (Approximately 5 or 6 assignments)
- Final Research Project (Formal report and presentation)

**Small Projects:** Approximately, 5 or 6 small projects will be provided during the course of the semester.
Each assignment will have a specified due date - on the day due, please hand the assignment in during class. I would
like each student to work individually on each assignment because each assignment is designed like a mini-Ph.D.
oriented research task.

**Final Project:** Each student will be assigned a final project for which they will complete a formal
literature search. A final report summarizing the research topic will be submitted during the final week
of class. Each student will be provided a time slot during which the topic will also be presented to the
class.

**Grading:** The course grading will be based on the small projects (5 to 6) and the comprehensive research
project with the weighting between the two to be roughly 60-40, respectively.

**Prerequisites:** Exposure to linear algebra and matrices. You should have seen
the following topics: matrices and vectors, (introductory) linear algebra and differential
equations.

- CEE511 Dynamics of Structures (or equivalent) -
**strictly enforced**

**Course Description:** The course explores in greater depth the fundamental mathematics invoked
to richly describe dynamic system behavior. A unifying theory of domain transformation (Fourier,
Laplace and Z-transforms) is presented to serve as a launching point into the principles
of system identification, structural control and structural monitoring. Students will
learn how to design structural monitoring systems to accurately measure system responses
to seismic, wind and blast excitations. The design of structural control systems that
employ active, semi-active and passive actuation devices will be presented in detail.
