Earthquakes pose one of the greatest challenges to structural designers. The decade or so has seen great human and economic loss from the collapse of concrete structures following earthquakes in Mexico City, Turkey, California, Japan and elsewhere. Many of the world's largest conurbations continue to face a major seismic threat. Recent significant advances have been made in design, analysis and construction technologies for earthquake resistant concrete structures and have led to the need for an up-to-date survey of current practice. Concrete Structures in Earthquake Regions: Design and Analysis provides this survey. The comprehensive coverage will guide engineers through the new technology and practices in this highly complex area of construction. Undergraduate and advanced students of earthquake engineering will welcome the comprehensive and approachable coverage.
