9780470778159: Earthquake Resistant Design and Risk Reduction

Earthquake Resistant Design and Risk Reduction, 2nd edition is based upon global research and development work over the last 50 years or more, and follows the author’s series of three books Earthquake Resistant Design, 1st and 2nd editions (1977 and 1987), and Earthquake Risk Reduction (2003). Many advances have been made since the 2003 edition of Earthquake Risk Reduction, and there is every sign that this rate of progress will continue apace in the years to come. Compiled from the author’s wide design and research experience in earthquake engineering and engineering seismology, this key text provides an excellent treatment of the complex multidisciplinary process of earthquake resistant design and risk reduction.

New topics include the creation of low-damage structures and the spatial distribution of ground shaking near large fault ruptures. Sections on guidance for developing countries, response of buildings to differential settlement in liquefaction, performance-based and displacement-based design and the architectural aspects of earthquake resistant design are heavily revised. 

This book:

  • Outlines individual national weaknesses that contribute to earthquake risk to people and property
  • Calculates the seismic response of soils and structures, using the structural continuum “Subsoil – Substructure – Superstructure – Non–structure”
  • Evaluates the effectiveness of given design and construction procedures for reducing casualties and financial losses
  • Provides guidance on the key issue of choice of structural form
  • Presents earthquake resistant design methods for the main four structural materials – steel, concrete, reinforced masonry and timber – as well as for services equipment, plant and non-structural architectural components
  • Contains a chapter devoted to problems involved in improving (retrofitting) the existing built environment

This book is an invaluable reference and guiding tool to practising civil and structural engineers and architects, researchers and postgraduate students in earthquake engineering and engineering seismology, local governments and risk management officials.

About the Author:

David Dowrick graduated as a Civil Engineer from Auckland University in 1958, and was awarded a Doctorate of Engineering in 2003. He has worked both in consulting engineering and in earthquake research, based in London and New Zealand. He now works part-time on earthquake research from his home in Tauranga, where he is also involved in four non-engineering committees.
Major engineering design projects include the Sydney Opera House roof, restoration of York Minster and the Ohaaki power station cooling tower in New Zealand. In addition, he has advised the New Zealand Historic Places Trust on a variety of conservation projects. Dr Dowrick is the author of over 70 publications, including four editions of books on earthquake engineering. He has received five awards, four for earthquake engineering papers plus the Institution of Civil Engineers’ Telford Gold Medal for his paper on York Minster. He has been made a life member of the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineering.
