9780442269227: The Seismic Design Handbook (The structural engineering series)

This handbook contains up-to-date information on planning, analysis, and design of earthquake-resistant building structures. Its intention is to provide engineers, architects, developers, and students of structural engineering and architecture with authoritative, yet practical, design information. It represents an attempt to bridge the persisting gap between advances in the theories and concepts of earthquake-resistant design and their implementa­ tion in seismic design practice. The distinguished panel of contributors is composed of 15 experts from industry and universities, recognized for their knowledge and extensive practical experience in their fields. They have aimed to present clearly and concisely the basic principles and procedures pertinent to each subject and to illustrate with practical examples the application of these principles and procedures in seismic design practice. Where applicable, the provisions of various seismic design standards such as ANSI-82, BOCA-87, ATC 3-06, NEHRP-85, UBC-85, and UBC-88 are thoroughly explained and their differences are highlighted. A number of chapters are of particular interest because they cover subjects that have never before been published in book form. Seismic base isolation, floor diaphragm design, and design for drift and lateral stability are among these subjects.
