Abstract:
Emphasizing design, not analysis, this detailed reference demonstrates the application of structural design for earthquake resistance. Based on the authors extensive research and practical experience, it's packed with real world applications, illustrated examples, and how-to-guidance. Ductile frames, wall and dual systems, both in reinforced concrete and masonry, form the main body of the text. You'll also find coverage of basic concepts of seismic design, qualifications of detailing on structural design, a review of causes and defects of earthquakes, and the latest information from the most recent major earthquakes.
