Summary and Info
Description: This landmark publication is a complete guide to the design and detailing of reinforced concrete buildings for seismic forces. Abstract: The publication is a complete guide to design of reinforced concrete buildings for earthquake motions. It contains practical information on earthquake ground motion and its effects, design spectrum, response of multistory buildings to earthquakes, principles of earthquake-resistant design, seismic design considerations, code requirements, strength, ductility, and energy absorption. Construction and inspection of reinforced concrete building subjected to earthquake ground motions is also discussed. Application of earthquake resistant design provisions is illustrated through analysis, design, and detailing of a 24-story reinforced concrete building. Table of Contents 1.
