Post-Earthquake Fire Analysis in Urban Structures: Risk Management Strategies

Behrouz Behnam
October 20, 2016

Post-earthquake fire is one of the most complicated problems resulting from earthquakes and presents a serious risk to urban structures. Most standards and codes ignore the possibility of post-earthquake fire; thus it is not factored in when determining the ability of buildings to withstand load....

Structural Analysis and Design to Prevent Disproportionate Collapse

Feng Fu
March 03, 2016

Hard Guidance on Preventing Disproportionate Collapse Disproportionate collapse is a pressing issue in current design practice. Numerous causes are possible – especially forms of extreme loading, such as blast, fire, earthquake, or vehicle collisions. But it is the mechanism and its prevention...

Design Principles and Analysis of Thin Concrete Shells, Domes and Folders

Iakov Iskhakov, Yuri Ribakov
November 16, 2015

One of the main goals of a good and effective structural design is to decrease, as far as possible, the self-weight of structures, because they must carry the service load. This is especially important for reinforced concrete (RC) structures, as the self-weight of the material is substantial. For...

Smart Connection Systems: Design and Seismic Analysis

Jong Wan Hu
October 05, 2015

This book introduces new smart connection systems which can be used in aseismic building design in order to control inter-story drifts and to reduce residual displacements. They are also utilized as damper devices and base isolators. The application of these systems to composite moment frame...

Seismic Retrofitting: Learning from Vernacular Architecture

Mariana R. Correia, Paulo B. Lourenco, Humberto Varum
September 08, 2015

Local communities have adapted for centuries to challenging surroundings, resulting from unforeseen natural hazards. Vernacular architecture often reveals very intelligent responses attuned to the environment. Therefore, the question that emerged was: how did local populations prepare their...

Seismic Resistant Design and Technology

Dentcho Ivanov
June 26, 2015

An earthquake is a powerful surface acoustic wave (SAW) generated by a seismic event, such as a volcano or motion of the Earth's layers, that propagates on the Earth's surface. This book explains the design of earthquake resistant structures using SAW techniques that offer a variety of experimental...

Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and Earthquake Engineering Applications

Zach Liang, George C. Lee
April 14, 2015

Focuses on the Basic Methodologies Needed to Handle Random Processes After determining that most textbooks on random vibrations are mathematically intensive and often too difficult for students to fully digest in a single course, the authors of Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and...

Seismic Design of Concrete Buildings to Eurocode 8

Michael N. Fardis, Eduardo C. Carvalho, Peter Fajfar, Alain Pecker
March 04, 2015

An Original Source of Expressions and Tools for the Design of Concrete Elements with Eurocode Seismic design of concrete buildings needs to be performed to a strong and recognized standard. Eurocode 8 was introduced recently in the 30 countries belonging to CEN, as part of the suite of Structural...

Wavelet Analysis in Civil Engineering

Pranesh Chatterjee
February 02, 2015

Wavelets as a Powerful Signal Processing Tool The principles of wavelets can be applied to a range of problems in civil engineering structures, such as earthquake-induced vibration analysis, bridge vibrations, and damage identification. This book is particularly useful for graduate students and...
