By Chapter:

  • Finite difference and finite element technique taught as almost a story telling session with a large number of problems solved to give an engineer insight into the theories. Two major practical problems solved by using commercially available software presenting the results graphically. Engineers new to the topic who want to self learn or want to use the theory for practical analysis in design office will find it extremely valuable. (Ch.2)
  • A most comprehensive treatment of theory of soil dynamics and seismology from Lamb (1904) to Pekeris to today. Graduate and Doctoral students doing research in the area will find it an excellent reference and food for further research. (Ch.5)
  • Well-written comprehensive and easy approach to Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction Analysis and its practical applications. This allows the reader to get a quick and clear understanding of the topic, which often gets bogged by its usual mathematically oblique representation. (Ch.6)
  • Matrix-based approach to machine foundation design with a number of worked practical examples solved, including a novel yet realistic analysis for impact type foundation. This allows structural engineers who are not conversant with machine foundations to quickly get acquainted with the design office assignments. The easy technique can also be used to program or develop a spreadsheet. (Ch.7)
  • Different types of practical structures and foundations solved by a novel shape function technique starting from buildings, tall chimneys dams, retaining walls, etc. for earthquake analysis. Engineers working in design offices can tackle any problem based on the examples cited in the book. It also discusses the various techniques used for various structures as developed around the world. (Ch.8)


Designed to provide engineers with quick access to current and practical information on the dynamics of structure and foundation, this 2-volume reference work is intended for engineers involved with earthquake or dynamic analysis, or the design of machine foundations in the oil, gas, and energy sector. Whereas the first volume deals with the fundamentals, this volume is dedicated to applications in various civil engineering problems, related to dynamic soil-structure interaction, machine foundation and earthquake engineering. It presents innovative, easy-to-apply and practical solutions to various problems and difficulties a design engineer will encounter. It allows quick access to targeted information; it includes a wealth of case studies and also examines geotechnical considerations with regard to dynamic soil-structure interaction. This book is concentrated on three major application areas: dynamic soil-structure interaction (DSSI), rhe analysis and design of machine foundations, and on the analytical and design concepts for earthquake engineering. Vol. 1 (ISBN 9780415471459) focusses on the theory and fundamentals book.
