Developments in computational structural dynamics coupled with technological innovations, field investigations in the aftermath of destructive earthquakes and subsequent research have resulted in an enormous accumulation of knowledge on earthquake engineering problems. However, current practice has fallen far behind state-of-the-art knowledge and this gap needs to be bridged if a substantial reduction in seismic risk is to be achieved.

Embracing a wide spectrum of problems and providing an extensive view of modern seismic engineering, Innovative Approaches to Earthquake Engineering fulfills this need. It features invited chapters from leading experts in this dynamic field, and provides invaluable information for research students, practicing engineers, architectural and design specialists, government officials and public policy makers.
