Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering By Amr S Elnashai and Luigi Di Sarno

Description Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering: From Source to Fragility, Second¬†Edition¬†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, and culminating with probabilistic fragility analysis that applies to individual as well as groups of buildings. Basic concepts for accounting for the effects of soil-structure interaction effects in seismic design and assessment are also provided in this second edition….
