9780415447621: Seismic Design of Buildings to Eurocode 8

Practical information and training has become urgently needed for the new Eurocode 8 on the Design of Structures for Earthquake Resistance, especially in relation to the underlying principles of seismic behaviour and the design of building structures.

This book covers seismic design in a clear but brief manner and links the principles to the code, illustrated with design examples. Concrete and steel buildings, and their foundations, are given special emphasis but the book is widely applicable.

It stems from practical short courses on seismic design, run jointly by the Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics and Imperial College London. Written by senior academics with significant consulting experience and by leading practitioners, it has a strong industry emphasis. It suits a wide range of practising civil and structural engineers, academics preparing courses and needing worked examples, and advanced undergraduate and Masters students in Earthquake, Structural or Geotechnical Engineering.

About the Author:

Ahmed Y. Elghazouli is Head of the Structural Engineering Section and Director of the MSc course in Earthquake Engineering at Imperial College London. He is the UK National Delegate to both the European Association of Earthquake Engineering (EAEE) and the International Association of Earthquake Engineering (IAEE), and is the current vice chairman and chairman elect of SECED.

Review:

'It could be used ... in a senior-level or graduate level course on seismic design. It would also be most useful for the practicing engineer because the many practical and worked-out examples help make the approaches concrete and useful. Highly recommended.'

-- Noise Control Engineering Journal
