Response Spectrum Method in Seismic Analysis and Design of Structures

1st Edition

Ajaya Kumar Gupta
April 06, 1992

New developments in the response spectrum method have led to calculations in seismic stresses that are more accurate, and usually lower, than those obtained by conventional methods. This new textbook examines the wealth of information on the response spectrum method generated by the latest research...
