Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures – An exclusive book for civil & structural engineers
The renowned writer Mr. S.K. Duggal published the second edition of the exclusive engineering book known as earthquake-resistant design of structures.
This book highlights and briefly narrates all facets of earthquake-resistant design of structures. The book is specifically designed for undergraduate and graduate students of civil engineering, practicing engineers as well as architects. The book primarily focuses on structural analysis, structural dynamics, and structural design.
The knowledge with the design of earthquake-resistant structures is essential to get an understanding of the procedure in which a structure soaks up the energy dispatched to it throughout an earthquake. The book contributes a wide-ranging coverage of the elementary principles of earthquake-resistant design with special attention to the design of masonry, reinforced concrete, and steel buildings. The text is provided on the design of structural and non-structural components compliant with the BIS codes.
This book comprises of 11 chapters, which exhaustively explains the design of earthquake-resistant structures. The book begins with the components of earthquake theory and seismic design, dynamics of structures and soils and their seismic response and then continues to expose the conceptualization and actualization of the design of earthquake-resistant structures. In-depth seismic analyses of various types of buildings like masonry, timber, reinforced concrete, and steel buildings are provided in the book. In conclusion, a thorough discussion concerning the behavior of non-structural components against seismic forces and an analysis of the 2001 Bhuj earthquake are demonstrated as ending chapters.
The book covers the following topics :-
- Earthquakes and Ground Motion
- Dynamics of Structures and Seismic Response
- Dynamics of Soils and Seismic Response
- Conceptual Design
- Code-based Analysis Method and Design Approaches
- Masonry Buildings
- Timber Buildings
- Reinforced Concrete Buildings
- Steel Buildings
- Non-structural Elements
- Bhuj Earthquake 2001: A Case Study
