Synopses & Reviews
Structural irregularities are one of the most frequent causes of severe damages in buildings, as evidenced by the numerous earthquakes in recent years. This issue is of particular importance,
In the most up-to-date review of issues relating to structural irregularities in civil buildings vulnerable to seismic activity, authors from 13 countries consider numerous aspects from ground rotation and seismic waves to building design and monitoring.
