Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering
Publisher: Wiley | pages: 366 | 2008 | ISBN: 0470024836 | PDF | 12,7 mb

Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering combines aspects of engineering seismology, structural and geotechnical earthquake engineering to assemble the vital components required for a deep understanding of response of structures to earthquake ground motion, from the seismic source to the evaluation of actions and deformation required for design.
