Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Buildings


Published by McGraw-Hill Professional

Author: Jack Moehle


Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Buildings provides comprehensive coverage of the behavior, design and construction requirements for earthquake-resistant concrete buildings. This book will fill a gap in the available literature on seismic design and will be the go-to reference for graduate engineering students and practicing engineers alike.This text will address design requirements, performance assessment, behavior of structural materials and discussion of analysis, design, detailing and construction applications. The book is designed as a textbook for graduate-level students and will include a complete set of worksheets. The book will also be useful for practicing engineers and will function as a reference guide for structural and geotechnical engineers, both in the United States and abroad.


Covers key topics in seismic design, from performance considerations, through structural materials, components and systems.

Includes analysis, design, detailing and construction aspects

Discusses design requirements and code applications

Includes a complete set of worksheets to accompany lectures

Readers will:

Understand building seismic performance objectives and be able to apply engineering analysis/design tools to achieve them

Understand behavior of structural materials and design requirements for structural systems

Assess performance of proposed or existing building construction
