Bridge Engineering: Seismic Design (repost)

Wai-Fah Chen, Lian Duan, "Bridge Engineering: Seismic Design"
2003 | ISBN: 0849316839 | 453 pages | PDF | 47,6 MB

Mitigating the effects of earthquakes is crucial to bridge design. Comprising chapters culled from the acclaimed Bridge Engineering Handbook, this volume sets forth the principles and applications of seismic design, from the necessary geotechnical and dynamic analysis background to seismic isolation and energy dissipation, active control, and retrofit technology. In-depth discussions contributed by bridge and earthquake engineers from around the world cover the types and effects of earthquake damage, as well as structural performance criteria.
The book also includes an overview of seismic design practices in Japan, including a study of the damage to highway bridges caused by the Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake.
Design of Seismic Isolated Structures: From Theory to Practice

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.

Understanding the Fundamentals of 3-d Seismic Survey Design (Geophysical References)

Understanding the Fundamentals of 3-d Seismic Survey Design (Geophysical References) by Gijs J. O Vermeer
English | Jan. 2002 | ISBN: 1560801131 | 205 Pages | DJVU | 20.53 MB


An essential ingredient for successful 3-D seismic survey design is a basic understanding of the spatial properties of the seismic wavefield. These properties were described for 2-D seismic data in Seismic Wavefield Sampling by the same author. This book extends the description into the much more complex field of 3-D seismic data.
