Project of third week: (Project 1)

Evaluate the effect  of damping ratio in response of a SDOF system.

So each group should define a SDOF system and assume mass, stiffness for the system.

Then find response of system in terms of displacement, velocity, acceleration in versus of time (i.e displacement-time graph) for range of 0.01, 0.1, 0.5, 1, 1.5 damping ratio. Eventually compare the result and discuss about differences.

The soft copy of projects and result should submit online through following link for each group and the projects and results will present in the class via powerpoint.

Submit Assignment

Project of fourth week: (Project 2)

Evaluate the effect of Beta in response of a SDOF system or single story frame building under harmonic load.

The detail is discussed in the class.

The soft copy of projects and result should submit online through following link for each group and the projects and results will present in the class via powerpoint.

Notice  for Class:

The Electricity of faculty will off on this Saturday (27/10/2012)  afternoon.

So Structural Dynamic Class should be cancel and postponed to another time.

Kindly inform to your classmate.

Thank you and sorry for ay inconvenience.

Matlab Training Program

I would like to inform that our friend Mr. Soroosh Abbasi will help and will train programing with Matlab.

So, the class for learning basic structure of programing in Matlab will held on 22 and 23 of December at 6 pm in the engineering library and it is free.  Any body interested please send email to him in order to reserve a sit because of limitation of sits.

His email is:

His helping to our students for learning programming with Matlab is highly appreciated.


Presentation for Structural Dynamics Course will held on 22 December at 2pm to 5 pm.

 Test 2

Test 2 of Structural Dynamics will held on 24 December at 6pm to 8 pm.

Venue: BK8

Thank you for Test 2. It help us a lot. Hopefully the
final test will be same.
All of us in this course thank for DR.Prof.Hejazi,since that
he made us very close to dynamic and he taught us very
well,I am proud that I am DR’s student and hopefully that
we can atone his goodnesses.








highly appreciate your efforts Dr. Farzad ..
1- for the next semesters if possible  can you make the
lectures for the final exam more concentrated about
some of subjects since we took a lot of things and it
seems to be confusing at the final.
2- to follow the references style (symbols and questions)
to be easy for students and being more beneficent.
3- to give more than three questions at the final since
its really different from structural analysis.
4- we didn’t use the assignments materials in our
studying for final, is it helpful to get more assignments
matching the questions type in the exams.

Take every single chance as it could be a positive opportunity that enhance your future
