Overview

Dynamics of Structures introduces the theory of structural dynamics and its application to earthquake analysis, response, design and evaluation of structures. Expert Anil K. Chopra presents this often difficult subject as simply as possible. No prior knowledge of structural dynamics is assumed, and the presentation is detailed enough for self-study. Analytical procedures summarize key steps, making them easy for you to replicate. Worked-out examples, illustrative figures and real photos help you gain a deeper understanding of how theory is applied to practical problems.

The 6th Edition includes a new chapter on dynamics of building-soil interaction. Updates and revisions throughout reflect current building codes, methods and research.

Your eTextbook subscription gives you access for 4 months. You can make a one‑time payment for the initial 4‑month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4‑month term ends. You can turn on auto‑renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4‑month term ends.

When you purchase an eTextbook subscription, it will last 4 months. You can renew your subscription by selecting Extend subscription on the Manage subscription page in My account before your initial term ends.

If you extend your subscription, we'll automatically charge you every month. If you made a one‑time payment for your initial 4‑month term, you'll now pay monthly. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details.

To avoid the next payment charge, select Cancel subscription on the Manage subscription page in My account before the renewal date. You can subscribe again in the future by purchasing another eTextbook subscription.

Channels is a video platform with thousands of explanations, solutions and practice problems to help you do homework and prep for exams. Videos are personalized to your course, and tutors walk you through solutions. Plus, interactive AI‑powered summaries and a social community help you better understand lessons from class.

Channels is an additional tool to help you with your studies. This means you can use Channels even if your course uses a non‑Pearson textbook.

When you choose a Channels subscription, you're signing up for a 1‑month, 3‑month or 12‑month term and you make an upfront payment for your subscription. By default, these subscriptions auto‑renew at the frequency you select during checkout.

When you purchase a Channels subscription it will last 1 month, 3 months or 12 months, depending on the plan you chose. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of your term unless you cancel it.
