  • Basic Earthquake Engineeringby Sucuoğ; Halû lu; k; Sinan Akkar

    Springer 2014; US$ 89.99

    This book provides senior undergraduate students, master students and structural engineers who do not have a background in the field with core knowledge of structural earthquake engineering that will be invaluable in their professional lives. The basics of seismotectonics, including the causes, magnitude, and intensity of earthquakes, are first explained.... 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Earthquake-Resistant Structuresby Mohiuddin Ali Khan

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 185.00

    Earthquake engineering is the ultimate challenge for structural engineers. Even if natural phenomena involve great uncertainties, structural engineers need to design buildings, bridges, and dams capable of resisting the destructive forces produced by them. These disasters have created a new awareness about the disaster preparedness and mitigation.... more...

  • Seismic Vulnerability of Structuresby Philippe Gueguen

    Wiley 2013; US$ 149.95

    This book is focused on the seismic vulnerability assessment methods, applied to existing buildings, describing several behaviors and new approaches for assessment on a large scale (urban area). It is clear that the majority of urban centers are composed of old buildings, designed according to concepts and rules that are inadequate to the seismic... 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...

  • Seismic Performance of Concrete Buildingsby Liviu Crainic; Mihai Munteanu

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 159.95

    This book examines and presents essential aspects of the behavior, analysis, design and detailing of reinforced concrete buildings subjected to strong seismic activity. Seismic design is an extremely complex problem that has seen spectacular development in the last decades. The present volume tries to show how the principles and methods of earthquake... more...

  • The Hydrology of the UKby Mike Acreman

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 83.95

    Change will continue to be a major feature of UK hydrology in the future. This book provides an understanding of the changing hydrology of the UK and the international scene today and looks to the needs of the future. more...
