Seismic Resistant Design and Technology

1st Edition

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

1st Edition

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...

April 15, 2014

Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes contains selected papers presented at the New Zealand – Japan Workshop on Soil Liquefaction during Recent Large-Scale Earthquakes (Auckland, New Zealand, 2-3 December 2013). The 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes in New Zealand and...

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

1st Edition

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...

1st Edition

Federico Mazzolani, Ricardo Herrera
January 31, 2012

Behaviour of Steel Structures in Seismic Areas  is a comprehensive overview of recent developments in the field of seismic resistant steel structures. It comprises a collection of papers presented at the seventh International Specialty Conference STESSA 2012 (Santiago, Chile, 9-11 January 2012...

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

1st Edition

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...

Rock Stress and Earthquakes

1st Edition

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...

Federico Mazzolani, James M. Ricles, Richard Sause
December 03, 2009

Behaviour of Steel Structures in Seismic Areas comprises the latest progress in both theoretical and experimental research on the behaviour of steel structures in seismic areas. The book presents the most recent trends in the field of steel structures in seismic areas, with particular...

Foundations for Industrial Machines: Handbook for Practising Engineers

1st Edition

K.G. Bhatia
October 12, 2009

The performance, safety and stability of machines depends largely on their design, manufacturing and interaction with environment. Machine foundations should be designed in such a way that the dynamic forces transmitted to the soil through the foundation, eliminating all potentially harmful forces....
