Basic Earthquake Engineering: From Seismology to Analysis by Halûk Sucuoğlu,Sinan Akkar

By Halûk Sucuoğlu,Sinan Akkar

This booklet presents senior undergraduate scholars, grasp scholars and structural engineers who don't have a historical past within the box with center wisdom of structural earthquake engineering that may be important of their expert lives. the fundamentals of seismotectonics, together with the explanations, value, and depth of earthquakes, are first defined. Then the booklet introduces easy parts of seismic risk research and offers the idea that of a seismic threat map to be used in seismic layout. next chapters disguise key points of the reaction research of straightforward structures and development struc­tures to earthquake flooring motions, layout spectrum, the adoption of seismic research approaches in seismic layout codes, seismic layout rules and seismic layout of strengthened concrete constructions. precious labored examples on seismic research of linear, nonlinear and base remoted constructions, earthquake-resistant layout of body and frame-shear wall platforms are incorporated, such a lot of which might be solved utilizing a hand calculator.
