Geotechnical Analysis/Design - Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering
Springer | 2007-02 | ISBN: 3540357823 | 300 pages | PDF | 3.5 Mb
This book presents all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a comprehensive way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms, experimental studies on nonlinear complex soil behaviour, an analysis to predict ground behaviour during earthquakes, field studies to determine nature of real ground as input data for analysis, and damage mitigation technologies. Information obtained from earthquake damage investigation (such as ground motion, landslides, earth pressure, fault action, or liquefaction) as well as data from laboratory tests and field investigation is supplied, together with exercises/questions.
