This work contains 35 papers which cover: lessons from past earthquakes; seismicity, seismic risk and strong motion; soil response and soil-structure interaction; response analysis; code-oriented analysis; base isolation and active control; and […] Posted in architecture Download free Expansive Soils : Problems and Practice in Foundation and Pavement Engineering – John D. Nelson, Debora J. Miller
This reference work describes the engineering problems of foundations built on expansive soils. Expansive soils, which shrink or swell under changing moisture conditions, cause more damage to structures, particularly light buildings and […] Posted in materials Download free Earthquake Resistant Concrete Structures – G. g.
