Summary and Info
The book is divided into three parts; the first part is theoretical and is intended to give an introduction to the nature of earthquakes where it treats the dynamic aspects of the effect of earthquakes on structures. It also addresses the behavior of structures under seismic excitations. The second part treats, in detail, the design aspects of earthquake-resistant structures (both buildings and bridges) within the scope of seismic provisions of the latest modern and popular codes in their areas such as IBC®, ACI, AISC, and AASHTO. The third part tackles special topics pertinent to the safety of structures under seismic excitations such as geotechnical aspects, foundations, synthetic earthquakes, and seismic isolation.The book's discussion of theoretical as well as practical sides of the subjects will benefit graduate and advanced undergraduate level students. It is also an ideal reference for practicing professionals for analysis and design of earthquake-resistant structures. The book is rich in illustrations and examples that make it easy to follow the concepts and alleviate the perplexity associated with earthquake effects on structures
