Advanced Earthquake Engineering Analysis / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Vienna
During the last decade, the state-of-the-art in Earthquake Engineering Design and Analysis has made significant steps towards a more rational analysis of structures. This book reviews the fundamentals of displacement based methods. Starting from engineering seismology and earthquake geotechnical engineering, it proceeds to focus on design, analysis and testing of structures with emphasis on buildings and bridges.
