in Seismic Regions

CRC Press 
ISBN 978-0-415-53763-6

Dear Customer,
Dear Website Visitor,

If you are involved in seismic design of buildings and you get lost in the various theories and assumptions necessary to understand Eurocode 8 and the ACI 318, then this book is a MUST. 

In 848 pages you get to know:

  • structural dynamics
  • design principles
  • configuration of earthquake resistance for reinforced concrete structures
  • structural analysis
  • capacity design
  • RC Frames-RC walls-foundations and seismic resistance
  • pathology and emergency post earthquake damage inspection
  • retrofitting and repair
  • risk management
  • and much more... 

Many examples are worked out, including designs of structures with Scia Engineer & ECtools.

This is the most comprehensive and accessible book to the theme of seismicity and structures and I highly recommend it.
