The proceedings cover dynamic effects on building structures caused by seismicity, wind, impact, vibrations due to machines and traffic etc. These effects have become increasingly important for their design. In modern structural dynamics, sophisticated tools have been developed, particularly using variational methods such as Finite or Boundary Element Methods for a better understanding of the structural behaviour, the optimization of the design and the prediction of failure under dynamic loading. Experimental investigations in conjuction with system identification provide the basis to develop and verify theoretical models both for the structure and the material properties. Modern structural dynamics has become, therefore, an essential engineering tool for design and inspection of building structures.
