Summary

This new edition includes new chapters on geology; architectural aspects; systems, network, and software applications, economic aspects and financing earthquake risk. Earthquakes are nearly unique among natural phenomena – they affect virtually everything within a region, from massive buildings and bridges, down to the furnishings within a home. Successful earthquake engineering therefore requires a broad background in subjects, ranging from the geologic causes and effects of earthquakes to understanding the impact of these effects on foundations, buildings, structures and the infrastructure.
