  • Earthquake Resistant Engineering Structures Xby C. A. Brebbia

    WIT Press 2015; US$ 298.00

    Containing the latest research on preparation for and mitigation of future earthquakes, this book addresses an area of increasing importance to many areas around the world. It contains research presented at the ninth and latest in a series of biennial conferences on the topic organised by the Wessex Institute. 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-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...

  • Performance-Based Seismic Engineering: Vision for an Earthquake Resilient Societyby

    Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 179.00

    The Bled workshops have traditionally produced reference documents providing visions for the future development of earthquake engineering as foreseen by leading researchers in the field. The participants of the 2011 workshop built on the tradition of these events initiated by Professors Fajfar and Krawinkler to honor their important research contributions... more...

  • Seismic Behaviour and Design of Irregular and Complex Civil Structuresby

    Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 179.00

    In the most up-to-date review of issues relating to structural irregularities in civil buildings vulnerable to seismic activity, authors from 13 countries consider numerous aspects from ground rotation and seismic waves to building design and monitoring. more...

  • Basic Earthquake Engineeringby Halűk Sucuoglu; Sinan Akkar

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99

    Covers the seismic hazard, the basics of seismotectonics, and the fundamentals of earthquake engineering Meets the future professional needs of senior undergraduate students by explaining the principles of earthquake-resistant design Includes useful sample problems on earthquake-resistant design of frame and frame-shear wall systems more...

  • Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering Designby

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00

    Reflecting the shift in emphasis from pseudo-static to more sensitive performance-based analysis, this multi-part book covers the most recent advances, from evaluation of the site amplification to the design of reinforced earth retaining walls and landfills. more...

  • Seismic Effects on Structuresby E. Juhásová

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    This monograph deals with the problem of dynamic behaviour and seismic response of structures which are designed and constructed in seismic regions. Extensive attention is given to description of measuring methods, methods of evaluation of results and determination of dynamic properties of structures. The questions of linear and non-linear seismic... more...

  • Studies on the 2011 Off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku Earthquakeby

    Springer Japan 2013; US$ 129.00

    The Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011, officially designated the ?Off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku, Japan Earthquake? by the Japan Meteorological Agency caused an unprecedentedly severe disaster in the northeastern part (Tohoku) of the Japanese island of Honshu. This first volume of the series Natural Disaster Science and Mitigation Engineering:... more...
