APPLIED MECHANICS REVIEWS


Earthquake engineering is a vast subject encompassing seismology, geology, geotechnical engineering, structural mechanics, dynamics, and the design and construction of civil engineering works, as well as issues of earthquake preparedness, post-seismic recovery and reconstruction.

Tailored specifically to the needs of the earthquake practitioner, this book applies stochastic structural dynamics to typical problems in earthquake engineering. Material on random vibrations and stochastic mechanics is retained or adapted where relevant to the needs of civil engineers practicing aseismic design of structures. Also accessible to graduate students and researchers working in this field, the text contains many examples and exercises with solutions.
