Seismic Design of Buildings to Eurocode 8 (Hardback)Ahmed Y. Elghazouli (editor)
- Not available
Practical information and training has become urgently needed for the new Eurocode 8 on the Design of Structures for Earthquake Resistance, especially in relation to the underlying principles of seismic behaviour and the design of building structures.
This book covers seismic design in a clear but brief manner and links the principles to the code, illustrated with design examples. Concrete and steel buildings, and their foundations, are given special emphasis but the book is widely applicable.
It stems from practical short courses on seismic design, run jointly by the Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics and Imperial College London. Written by senior academics with significant consulting experience and by leading practitioners, it has a strong industry emphasis. It suits a wide range of practising civil and structural engineers, academics preparing courses and needing worked examples, and advanced undergraduate and Masters students in Earthquake, Structural or Geotechnical Engineering.

'It could be used ... in a senior-level or graduate level course on seismic design. It would also be most useful for the practicing engineer because the many practical and worked-out examples help make the approaches concrete and useful. Highly recommended.'
