This book provides a practical guide to the basic essentials of earthquake engineering with a focus on seismic loading and structural design. Benefiting from the author's extensive career as a structural engineer working in earthquake engineering, dynamic analysis and seismic design as well as lecturing to graduate students, it is written from an industry perspective at a level suitable for graduate students and those entering the profession. Research findings are translated into a project environment and employ simplicity of presentation to ensure that the design process and its associated mathematics are easily accessible and understandable.Fundamentals of Seismic Loading on Structures is organised into four major sections; introduction to earthquakes and related engineering problems, analysis, seismic loading and design concepts.Employs a highly practical focus that examines analytical methods for linear and non-linear response, Uniform Hazard Spectra (UHS), loading provisions in codes, Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) issues and liquefaction, allowing the reader to quickly identify and implement information in a working environment. Brings together the relevant mathematical techniques needed for the dynamic analysis of building structures with components of seismic loading comprising the characteristics of ground motion, attenuation relationships, use of time history records and site-dependent response data, augmented with examples from real-life projects. Explains probabilistic methods that are widely employed in the assessment of seismic hazard, illustrating the use of the Monte Carlo simulation with a number of worked examples. Summarises the latest developments in the field, such as performance-based seismic engineering, emphasizing the importance of design codes and providing worked examples incorporating IBC 2000 and Eurocode 8
