  • Seismic Control Systemsby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2012; US$ 186.00

    Earthquakes remain largely unpredictable and potentially catastrophic, a matter of continuous concern to communities in affected zones. Scientists and engineers have made a considerable effort to mitigate their consequences through the design of effective protective devices. New concepts have recently been developed to address the requirements for... more...

  • Design Against Blastby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2012; US$ 186.00

    Terrorist attacks and other destructive incidents caused by explosives have, in recent years, prompted considerable research and development into the protection of structures against blast loads. For this objective to be achieved, experiments have been performed and theoretical studies carried out to improve our assessments of the intensity as well... more...

  • Retrofitting of Heritage Structuresby S. SYNGELLAKIS

    WIT Press 2013; US$ 186.00

    The preservation of heritage architecture is a cultural objective rigorously pursued by communities and nations wishing to promote their history, civilisation and aesthetic achievements. Structures built in the remote past by traditional methods have suffered the consequences of extreme loading events, such as earthquakes, over long time periods. Retrofitting... more...

  • Heritage Masonryby S. SYNGELLAKIS

    WIT Press 2013; US$ 158.00

    Various issues of heritage masonry structures are addressed by the present collection of scientific papers with considerable insight and thoroughness. It is thus hoped that this volume will fill a gap in the literature as a valuable source of information and guidance to researchers and engineers working in the area of restoration and conservation of... more...

  • Projectile Impactby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 210.00

    Projectile Impact describes a broad spectrum of analytical and experimental work in this area, thus providing considerable insight into impact phenomena. By addressing a significant number of important issues it combines, rather uniquely, subject breadth and density with in-depth study of impact events of great engineering interest. more...

  • Earthquake-Soil Interactionby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 220.00

    Comprises a selection of articles on interactions between earthquakes and the soil in which they propagate. The book is concerned with soil composition and geomechanical features, which affect earthquake propagation and intensity; it also addresses detrimental effects of seismic shaking on soil properties and stability. more...

  • Earthquake Ground Motionby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 176.00

    In the first of two parts, the book deals with issues relating to the characterisation and the rational definition of seismic input. It begins with a study of earthquake records that leads to the identification of their damage potential parameters. The second part deals with ground motion effects on foundation elements and structural integrity. more...

  • Biomass to Biofuelsby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 210.00

    Biomass is a continuously renewed source of energy formed from or by a wide variety of living organisms. This volume addresses a significant number of important themes and thus combines subject breadth and density with in-depth study of biomass resourcing and processing as well as the issue of biofuel and renewable energy sustainability. more...

  • Waste to Energyby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 228.00

    Waste to Energy deals with the very topical subject of converting the calorific content of waste material into useful forms of energy. Topics included cover: Biochemical Processes; Conversions by Thermochemical Processes; Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling; Combustion; Pyrolysis; Gasification; Biofuels; Management and Policies. more...

  • Natural Filler and Fibre Compositesby S. Syngellakis

    WIT Press 2015; US$ 198.00

    Natural Filler and Fibre Composites describes a wide variety of innovative manufacturing processes, involving many natural materials, used both as reinforcement and matrix, as well as composite performance assessments under various conditions. As such, it is expected to be a valuable reference publication for engineers and scientists in this field. more...
