This book contains papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on Earthquake Resistant Engineering Structures organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology.
The problem of protecting the built environment in earthquake-prone regions of the world involves not only the optimal design and construction of new facilities, but also the upgrading and rehabilitation of existing structures and infrastructures in heritage buildings. The inestimable loss of life and the colossal costs following a major earthquake in a metropolitan area provides sufficient reason for the scientific and technical communities to respond to the challenges.
This volume contains papers covering the following topics: The 2009 Abuzzo Earthquake; Seismic Isolation and Energy Dissipation; Ground Motion; Soil Structure Interaction; Structural Performance.
