This book provides comprehensive, practical and easy to read advice for all engineers, designers and analysts of earthquake resistant structures. The entire text is completely revised to account for the many developments that have taken place since the publication of the best-selling first edition in 1988. This includes advances in the understanding of how structures and the soils that support them respond to ground shaking, development of new robust forms of earthquake resistant construction, and improved forms of analysis and assessment.
The scope includes buildings in concrete, steel, timber and masonry; site effects, soil liquefaction and foundation design. Extensive references are made to the recently published European seismic code, Eurocode 8 and to US seismic codes and standards. There are also chapters on seismic analysis, the retrofit of existing buildings, building contents and seismic isolation.
