Description: This textbook presents the fundamental concepts involved in the assessment of earthquake effects on structural systems. With an overview of the main aspects and purposes of earthquake engineering, this book describes the types and the extent of damage that an earthquake can produce, illustrated with a wide range of historical case studies. It covers the different ways that earthquake motions can be characterized for engineering purposes and discusses how local soil conditions may affect the methods used to quantify these effects. The text also introduces basic concepts of seismology, the design spectrum, base isolation, and damping enhancement with added energy dissipating devices.
