  • Design of Pile Foundations in Liquefiable Soilsby Gopal Madabhushi; Jonathan Knappett; Stuart Haigh

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 74.00

    Pile foundations are the most common form of deep foundations that are used both onshore and offshore to transfer large superstructural loads into competent soil strata. This book provides many case histories of failure of pile foundations due to earthquake loading and soil liquefaction. Based on the observed case histories, the possible mechanisms... more...

  • Earthquake Resistant Engineering Structures IXby C. A. BREBBIA; S. HERNÁNDEZ

    WIT Press 2013; US$ 398.00

    In earthquake-prone regions of the world it is important not only to ensure that new facilities meet optimal standards but also that existing structures and infrastructure be retrofitted and rehabilitated. As world populations concentrate in urban areas, the stakes in human life and property of such natural disasters as earthquakes becomes higher and... more...

  • Environmental Studies (H.P. University)by Deepa Sharma

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2007; US$ 20.00

    This book is written in accordance with the syllabus prescribed by HPU for Environmental Studies for engineering students. Various means can be adopted for creating mass awareness about the importance of conserving the environment. Making Environment Education as an compulsory subject can be a step towards this awareness. Media is the most important... more...

  • Implications of Recent Earthquakes on Seismic Riskby A.S. Elnashai; S. Antoniou

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 77.00

    The response of civil engineering works to earthquakes is the only real and conclusive proof of their adequacy or otherwise. However, earthquakes as natural geological phenomena are few and far-between, which is fortunate from a human point of view. Therefore, drawing important lessons from each and every earthquake is vital for improving the understanding... more...

  • Research Perspectives in Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineeringby Rama Prasad; S. Vedula

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 118.00

    This book contains ten state-of-the-art review articles on selected topics in hydraulics/fluid mechanics and water resources engineering, written by alumni of the Indian Institute of Science who hold senior academic positions in reputable scientific institutions and who are active in research. The articles have all been peer-reviewed. At the end of... more...

  • Seismic Risk and Engineering Decisionsby Cinna Lomnitz

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Seismic Risk and Engineering Decisions attempts to bridge the gap in decision making between earthquake characteristics and structural behavior. The book begins by providing the background on earthquake generation and characteristics. It reviews the present state of matters in seismicity assessment and treats uncertainties explicitly. The impact of... more...

  • A Critical Review of Vanby James Lighthill

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 32.00

    The acronym VAN refers to Drs Varotsos, Alexopoulos and Nomicos, members of a group based in the University of Athens and led by Professor Varotsos (head of the Physics Department) which for over a decade has sought to use electric-field measurements between electrodes buried in the earth to predict earthquakes in Greece over periods of order one month... more...

  • Damage-based Earthquake Engineeringby P. Ghisbain

    WIT Press 2014; US$ 192.00

    Over the life of a structure, smaller but more frequent earthquakes contribute more to the cumulative damage than larger earthquakes on which structural design is traditionally based. The included case studies show that the optimal solutions support a shift toward more resilient structures designed beyond the traditional life-safety requirements. 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...
