Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures presents the key concepts of earthquake resistant design for various structures and is useful for civil engineers. It can be useful for undergraduate as well as postgraduate civil engineering students. A comprehensive study on the importance and understanding of seismic analysis forms a vital part of the text. It is a guide that puts into practice the concepts behind seismic codes into the planning of buildings. It also talks about the fundamentals of structural dynamic, along with a discussion on engineering seismology. It touches upon various subjects which are a part of the process of Earthquake Resistant Design (ERD) and help when establishing earthquake resistant buildings. Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures connects seismic design and ERD. The other topics it explains are the seismic zoning map of India and the motion studies prevalent in India. As an insight into the subject of ERD, the authors, Pankaj Agarwal and Manish Shrikhande have expanded on the branch of seismic analysis by focusing on concepts like the numerical evaluation of dynamic response, theory of seismic pickups and response spectra. The first edition of Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures was published by PHI in 2006 and is available in paperback. Key Features: The book is an overview of the many benefits and importance of Earthquake Resistant Design. + The pages are equipped with multiple diagrams and illustrations for a better grasp of the concepts.
