Earthquake Engineering: Theory and Implementation with the 2015 International Building Code 3rd Edition offers cost-effective earthquake engineering methods and practical instruction on underlying structural dynamics concepts. The book teaches how to analyze the behavior of structures under seismic excitation and features up-to-date details on the design and construction of earthquake-resistant steel and reinforced concrete buildings, bridges, and isolated systems. All applicable requirements are fully explained, including the 2015 International Building Code and the latest ACI, AISC and AASHTO codes and regulations. Advanced chapters cover seismic isolation, synthetic earthquakes, foundation design, and geotechnical aspects such as liquefaction. Coverage includes:

  • Characteristics of earthquakes
  • Linear elastic dynamic analysis
  • Nonlinear and inelastic dynamic analysis
  • Behavior of structures under seismic excitation
  • Design of earthquake-resistant buildings (IBC)
  • Seismic provisions of reinforced concrete structures (ACI)
  • Introduction to seismic provisions of steel structures (AISC)
  • Design of earthquake-resistant bridges (AASHTO)
  • Geotechnical aspects and foundations
  • Synthetic earthquakes
  • Introduction to seismic isolation.
