      This week's content starts with ground energy and builds up to earthquake resistant design. View our featured content on the web.


      Earthquake Engineering - Mechanism, Damage Assessment and Structural Design (2nd Edition)
      Publisher: World Scientific
      Featured until: July 26, 2013
      Subject Area: Civil Engineering & Construction Materials

      View This Content on Knovel

      Description: This book presents new comprehensive rational quantitative theories (utilizing fundamental energy concepts throughout) covering the entire earthquake event from the point of view of the engineer. It starts with a mathematical analysis of an underground mechanism (the earthquake), then proceeds to determinations of the timewise and spacewise variations of the fundamental engineering damage-design parameter, the ground energy. Finally, the new theories are applied to a number of typical (actual) structural and non-structural design problems.


      Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures
      Publisher: Oxford University Press
      Featured until: July 26, 2013
      Subject Area: Civil Engineering & Construction Materials

      View This Content on Knovel

      Description: Designed to serve as a textbook for students pursuing a B tech or BE program in civil engineering, this book explains the different sources of damage that can be triggered by an earthquake and the conceptual method of earthquake-resistant design. The book will also be useful for postgraduate students of civil engineering, practicing engineers, and architects. The various topics in the book are presented in a systematic manner to ease understanding of concepts. After an introduction to earthquakes and ground motion, the easy-to-understand textbook provides detail chapters on structures and soil in terms of their seismic response.
