    Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Second Edition

    By: Robert Day

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    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


    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
