Fundamental of earthquake engineering – An exclusive e-book for practising engineers
The purpose of this book is to provide detail information of the newest structural earthquake engineering. The book sheds light on geology, engineering seismology and geotechnical engineering which are important subjects for the earthquake structural engineering educator, practitioner and researcher. It encloses earthquake structural engineering inside a outline of balance among ‘ Demand ’ and ‘ Supply ’ (requirements enforced on the system against its existing strength for action and deformation resistance).
In a system - integrated framework stands for ‘ From Source - to - Society ’ , where ‘ Source ’ defines the focal mechanisms of earthquakes, and ‘ Society ’ defines the synopsis of effects on complicated societal systems, this book provides thorough information related to the assessment of actions and deformations enforced by earthquakes on structural systems. It is therefore a ‘ Source - to - Structure ’ text.
The book is specifically written for the practising engineers who have long and moderately modern experience in earthquake - resistant design in high -seismicity regions. They will be benefitted with the demonstration of elementary response parameters and may find their relation to the structural and societal limit states exhilarating and discerning.
The modelling notes of Chapter 4 briefly explains the concepts of finite element demonstration in a particularly earthquake engineering situation.
The Chapter 3 on input motion provides good information for experienced structural earthquake engineering practitioners.
The chapter will facilitate them to choose perfect characterization of ground shaking. The Chapters 3 and 4 in the book is extremely useful for practising engineers with restricted or no experience in earthquake engineering.
