Book Description

A unified presentation of engineering seismology and earthquake-resistant design, this book presents a wide ranging coverage of the whole subject of earthquake engineering so that the reader is given a clear appreciation of earthquakes before dealing with their effects on structures. In addition, newer mathematical modelling techniques are introduced which can be powerful tools for assessing and dealing with the risks associated with design and construction in seismic regions.
