Publisher: CRC Pr,ss | ISBN: 0415804841 | 2009 | PDF | 452 pages | 26 MB
Earthquake Geotechnical Case Histories for Performance-Based Design is a collection of 26 case histories, each study containing well-instrumented geotechnical and earthquake data. The book is intended to serve as a reference work, since it contains a common scale to develop and implement design methodologies and numerical analyses, so that their reliability can be evaluated. Each case history consists of site characterization, earthquake motions and descriptions of failure as quantitative as possible.
