Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In order to protect the built environment in earthquake-prone regions of the world It is important to retrofit and rehabilitate existing structures and infrastructure, as well as to ensure the optimal design and construction of new facilities. The high stakes in human life and property in urban densely populated urban areas has been driving research on advances in this field. These advances are presented biennially at a conference organized by the Wessex Institute of Technology. This book contains the papers from the latest conference in the series, which began in 1991. The papers cover Geographical and geotechnical engineering; Seismic hazard and vulnerability; Seismic isolation and energy dissipation; Structural dynamics; Building performance during earthquakes; Retrofitting; Lifelines; Material mechanics and characterisation; Nonlinear numerical analysis; Performance based design; Experimental studies; Safety and security; and Innovative technologies.

Book News Annotation:

Drawn from papers delivered at the Eighth World Conference on Earthquake Resistant Engineering Structures organized by the Wessex Institute of Technology, UK, this collection of twenty-five articles showcases current scholarship and emerging industry practices in design for seismic resistance. The works are divided into sections covering effects and assessments of the 2009 Abruzzo earthquake, seismic isolation and energy dissipation, ground motion, soil structure interaction and structural performance and individual papers address topics such as site effects analysis, evaluating steel reinforced beam-column joints, nonlinear vibrations of piles, nuclear power plant seismic evaluations and masonry block construction in the third world. Chapters provide abstracts, illustrations, tables and figures. Contributors include engineers and academics from a variety of international institutions.
