Nazzal Armouti, "Earthquake Engineering Theory and Implementation, Second Edition"
English | ISBN: 1580015743 | 2006 | 548 pages | PDF | 8 MB
This thoroughly revised resource offers cost-effective earthquake engineering methods and practical instruction on underlying structural dynamics concepts. Earthquake Engineering, teaches how to analyze the behavior of structures under seismic excitation and features up-to-date details on the design and construction of earthquake-resistant steel and reinforced concrete buildings, bridges, and isolated systems. All applicable requirements are fully explained?including the International Building Code and the latest ACI, AISC, and AASHTO codes and regulations. Advanced chapters cover seismic isolation, synthetic earthquakes, foundation design, and geotechnical aspects such as liquefaction.
