Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions

Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions

George G. Penelis, Gregory G. Penelis

March 24, 2014

Bearing in mind that reinforced concrete is a key component in a majority of built environment structures, Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions combines the scientific knowledge of earthquake engineering with a focus on the design of reinforced concrete buildings in seismic regions. This book...

Frontiers of Discontinuous Numerical Methods and Practical Simulations in Engineering and Disaster Prevention

Frontiers of Discontinuous Numerical Methods and Practical Simulations in Engineering and Disaster Prevention

Guangqi Chen, Yuzo Ohnishi, Lu Zheng, Takeshi Sasaki

August 12, 2013

Analysis of large deformation, rigid body movement and strain or stress for discontinuous materials is often required for project designs and plans in the fields of engineering and disaster prevention. Many numerical simulation and analysis methods have been developed for the requirement from...

Seismic Performance of Concrete Buildings: Structures and Infrastructures Book Series, Vol. 9

Seismic Performance of Concrete Buildings: Structures and Infrastructures Book Series, Vol. 9

Liviu Crainic, Mihai Munteanu

December 10, 2012

This book examines and presents essential aspects of the behavior, analysis, design and detailing of reinforced concrete buildings subjected to strong seismic activity. Seismic design is an extremely complex problem that has seen spectacular development in the last decades. The present volume tries...

Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction

Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction

Bungale S. Taranath

October 18, 2011

As software skills rise to the forefront of design concerns, the art of structural conceptualization is often minimized. Structural engineering, however, requires the marriage of artistic and intuitive designs with mathematical accuracy and detail. Computer analysis works to solidify and extend the...

Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Pushover Analysis of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Bridges

Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Pushover Analysis of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Bridges

Jeffrey Ger, Franklin Y. Cheng

August 18, 2011

Nonlinear static monotonic (pushover) analysis has become a common practice in performance-based bridge seismic design. The popularity of pushover analysis is due to its ability to identify the failure modes and the design limit states of bridge piers and to provide the progressive collapse...

Earthquake Engineering for Structural Design

Earthquake Engineering for Structural Design

Victor Gioncu, Federico Mazzolani

August 04, 2010

Developments in Earthquake Engineering have focussed on the capacity and response of structures. They often overlook the importance of seismological knowledge to earthquake-proofing of design. It is not enough only to understand the anatomy of the structure, you must also appreciate the nature of...

Rock Stress and Earthquakes

Rock Stress and Earthquakes

Furen Xie

July 29, 2010

The evaluation of in-situ rock stress is not only important in the exploration and engineering involving rock masses for mining, hydropower, tunneling, oil and gas production, and stone quarrying, but also in the geodynamics and earthquake prediction. The methods of determining these stresses for...
