  • 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 Matej Fischinger

    Springer 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...

  • 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 Michele Maugeri; Claudio Soccodato

    Springer 2014; US$ 179.00

    Pseudo-static analysis is still the most-used method to assess the stability of geotechnical systems that are exposed to earthquake forces. However, this method does not provide any information about the deformations and permanent displacements induced by seismic activity. Moreover, it is questionable to use this approach when geotechnical systems... 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 Hiroshi Kawase

    Springer 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: DPRI... more...

  • Seismic Design of Industrial Facilitiesby Sven Klinkel; Christoph Butenweg; Gao Lin; Britta Holtschoppen

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    Seismic Design of Industrial Facilities demands a deep knowledge on the seismic behaviour of the individual structural and non-structural components of the facility, possible interactions and last but not least the individual hazard potential of primary and secondary damages. From 26.-27. September 2013 the International Conference on Seismic Design... more...

  • Seismic Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Structuresby Alper Ilki; Michael N. Fardis

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    In the past, facilities considered to be at the end of their useful life were demolished and replaced with new ones that better met the functional requirements of modern society, including new safety standards. Humankind has recently recognised the threats to the environment and to our limited natural resources due to our relentless determination to... 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...
