Description
Information
The latest methods for designing seismically sound structures

Fully updated for the 2012 International Building Code, Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Handbook, Second Edition discusses basic earthquake principles, common earthquake effects, and typical structural damage caused by seismic shaking.

Earthquake computations for conditions commonly encountered by design engineers, such as liquefaction, settlement, bearing capacity, and slope stability, are included. Site improvement methods that can be used to mitigate the effects of earthquakes on structures are also described in this practical, comprehensive guide.

Coverage includes:

Basic earthquake principles

Common earthquake effects

Earthquake structural damage

Site investigation for geotechnical earthquake engineering

Liquefaction

Earthquake-induced settlement

Bearing capacity analyses for earthquakes

Slope stability analyses for earthquakes

Retaining wall analyses for earthquakes

Other geotechnical earthquake engineering analyses

Grading and other soil improvement methods

Foundation alternatives to mitigate earthquake effects

Earthquake provisions in building codes
