Design of Seismic Isolated Structures: From Theory to Practice
Publisher: Wiley | ISBN: 0471149217 | edition 1999 | PDF | 304 pages | 14,3 mb
Complete, practical coverage of the evaluation, analysis, and design and code requirements of seismic isolation systems. Based on the concept of reducing seismic demand rather than increasing the earthquake resistance capacity of structures, seismic isolation is a surprisingly simple approach to earthquake protection. However, proper application of this technology within complex seismic design code requirements is both complicated and difficult.
