Seismic Design of Rreinforced Concrete and Masonry Buildings
• Author(s): Thomas Paulay and M. J. N. Priestley
• Publisher: John Wiley and Sons, New York
• Publication Date: March 1992 (768 pages)
• ISBN-13: 978-0471549154 | ISBN-10: 0471549150

Emphasizes actual structural design, not analysis, of multistory buildings for seismic resistance. Strong emphasis is placed on specific detailing requirements for construction. Fundamental design principles are presented to create buildings that respond to a wide range of potential seismic forces, which are illustrated by numerous detailed examples. The discussion includes the design of reinforced concrete ductile frames, structural walls, dual systems, reinforced masonry structures, buildings with restricted ductility and foundation walls. In addition to the examples, full design calculations are given for three prototype structures.
