Fully updated coverage of earthquake-resistant engineering techniques, regulations, and codes: This thoroughly revised resource offers cost-effective earthquake engineering methods and practical instruction on underlying structural dynamics concepts. Earthquake Engineering, Third Edition, teaches how to analyze the behavior of structures under seismic excitation and features up-to-date details on the design and construction of earthquake-resistant steel and reinforced concrete buildings, bridges, and isolated systems. All applicable requirements are fully explained―including the 2015 International Building Code and the latest ACI, AISC, and AASHTO codes and regulations. Advanced chapters cover seismic isolation, synthetic earthquakes, foundation design, and geotechnical aspects such as liquefaction.

Earthquake Engineering covers: Characteristics of earthquakes + Linear elastic dynamic analysis + Nonlinear and inelastic dynamic analysis + Behavior of structures under seismic excitation + Design of earthquake-resistant buildings (IBC) +  Seismic provisions of reinforced concrete structures (ACI code) + Introduction to seismic provisions of steel structures (AISC code) + Design of earthquake-resistant bridges (AASHTO code) + Geotechnical aspects and foundations + Synthetic earthquakes + Introduction to seismic isolation.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
