In order to reduce the seismic risk facing many densely populated regions worldwide, including Canada and the United States, modern earthquake engineering should be more widely applied. But current literature on earthquake engineering may be difficult to grasp for structural engineers who are untrained in seismic design. In addition no single resource addressed seismic design practices in both Canada and the United States until now. Elements of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics was written to fill the gap. It presents the key elements of earthquake engineering and structural dynamics at an introductory level and gives readers the basic knowledge they need to apply the seismic provisions contained in Canadian and American building codes. But the scope of this book is not limited to structural analysis and design; it also discusses the basics of other relevant topics such as seismology, seismic risk analysis and geotechnical engineering, to help structural engineers work efficiently with other specialists on earthquake-resistant construction projects. Chapters end with a set of problems giving readers an insight into practical aspects of the subject.
