Engineer earthquake resistant structures using today's most advanced ductile steel design techniques.

This guide gives you the latest seismic-resistant design criteria--based on research into the recent Northridge and Kobe earthquakes. You get fingertip access to the ductile properties of steel. . .essential data on the plastic behavior of cross-sections. . .and systematic methods and applications of plastic analysis. This time-saving resource walks you through the seismic design of ductile braced frames and moment resisting frames. . .provides the special detailing requirements needed to ensure satisfactory plastic behavior. . .gives you an overview of special steel-based energy dissipation systems. . .and much more.
