Particularly, this publication shows the solution of the equation of dynamic equilibrium for structure with nonlinear time‐independent materials (plasticity, damage and frequencies evolution), as well as those time dependent non‐linear behavior materials (viscoelasticity and viscoplasticity). Rapid advances have been made during the past few decades in earthquake response modification technologies for structures, most notably in base isolation and energy dissipation systems.

If a load is applied sufficiently slowly, the inertia forces ( Newton's first law of motion) can be ignored and the analysis can be simplified as static analysis.

The convergence conditions for the non‐linear dynamic structure solution are studied and the theoretical concepts and its programming algorithms are presented. After serving as an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, he joined the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley where he has served as Assistant Professor (1967-71), Associate Professor (1971-76), Professor (1976- ), Vice Chair (1980-83) and Chair (1991-93, 1994-97) of the Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials program in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Designed for senior-level and graduate courses in Dynamics of Structures and Earthquake Engineering. Summary: Textbook for courses on dynamics of structures, either at the senior or 1st-year graduate level. Simple formulas for estimating the forces transmitted to the abutments and the superstructure transverse curvature demand are also derived, which account for the contribution of higher modes of vibration.

Hence the DAF for a given loading can be read from the graph, the static deflection can be easily calculated for simple structures and the dynamic deflection found.

Taking a different approach, Structural Damping: Applications in Seismic Response Modification considers the dynamic responses of structures with added damping devices as systems governed by the combined effect of the static stiffness, period, and damping—or "dynamic stiffness"—of the structure-device system. In 2011, he has received the Fib Achievement Award for Young Engineers, sponsored by fib - the international federation for structural concrete.
