This book focuses on the seismic design of building structures and their foundations to Eurocode 8. It covers the principles of seismic design in a clear but brief manner and then links these concepts to the provisions of Eurocode 8. It addresses the fundamental concepts related to seismic hazard, ground motion models, basic dynamics, seismic analysis, siting considerations, structural layout, and design philosophies, then leads to the specifics of Eurocode 8. Code procedures are applied with the aid of walk-through design examples which, where possible, deal with a common case study in most chapters. As well as an update throughout, this second edition incorporates three new and topical chapters dedicated to specific seismic design aspects of timber buildings and masonry structures, as well as base-isolation and supplemental damping. There is renewed interest in the use of sustainable timber buildings, and masonry structures still represent a popular choice in many areas. Moreover, seismic isolation and supplemental damping can offer low-damage solutions which are being increasingly considered in practice. The book stems primarily from practical short courses on seismic design which have been run over a number of years and through the development Eurocode 8. The contributors to this book are either specialist academics with significant consulting experience in seismic design, or leading practitioners who are actively engaged in large projects in seismic areas. This experience has provided significant insight into important areas in which guidance is required.

The comprehensive reference on the basics of structural analysisand design, now updated with the latest considerations of buildingtechnology Structural design is an essential element of the buildingprocess, yet one of the most difficult to learn. While structuralengineers do the detailed consulting work for a building project,architects need to know enough structural theory and analysis todesign a building. Most texts on structures for architects focusnarrowly on the mathematical analysis of isolated structuralcomponents, yet Building Structures looks at the general conceptswith selected computations to understand the role of the structureas a building subsystem—without the complicatedmathematics. New to this edition is a complete discussion of the LRFD methodof design, supplemented by the ASD method, in addition to: The fundamentals of structural analysis and design forarchitects A glossary, exercise problems, and a companion website andinstructor's manual Material ideally suited for preparing for the ARE exam Profusely illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs,and including new case studies, Building Structures, Third Editionis perfect for nonengineers to understand and visualize structuraldesign.

Reflecting the historic first European seismic code, this professional book focuses on seismic design, assessment and retrofitting of concrete buildings, with thorough reference to, and application of, EN-Eurocode 8. Following the publication of EN-Eurocode 8 in 2004-05, 30 countries are now introducing this European standard for seismic design, for application in parallel with existing national standards (till March 2010) and exclusively after that. Eurocode 8 is also expected to influence standards in countries outside Europe, or at the least, to be applied there for important facilities. Owing to the increasing awareness of the threat posed by existing buildings substandard and deficient buildings and the lack of national or international standards for assessment and retrofitting, its impact in that field is expected to be major. Written by the lead person in the development of the EN-Eurocode 8, the present handbook explains the principles and rationale of seismic design according to modern codes and provides thorough guidance for the conceptual seismic design of concrete buildings and their foundations. It examines the experimental behaviour of concrete members under cyclic loading and modelling for design and analysis purposes; it develops the essentials of linear or nonlinear seismic analysis for the purposes of design, assessment and retrofitting (especially using Eurocode 8); and gives detailed guidance for modelling concrete buildings at the member and at the system level. Moreover, readers gain access to overviews of provisions of Eurocode 8, plus an understanding for them on the basis of the simple models of the element behaviour presented in the book. Also examined are the modern trends in performance- and displacement-based seismic assessment of existing buildings, comparing the relevant provisions of Eurocode 8 with those of new US prestandards, and details of the most common and popular seismic retrofitting techniques for concrete buildings and guidance for retrofitting strategies at the system level. Comprehensive walk-through examples of detailed design elucidate the application of Eurocode 8 to common situations in practical design. Examples and case studies of seismic assessment and retrofitting of a few real buildings are also presented. From the reviews: "This is a massive book that has no equal in the published literature, as far as the reviewer knows. It is dense and comprehensive and leaves nothing to chance. It is certainly taxing on the reader and the potential user, but without it, use of Eurocode 8 will be that much more difficult. In short, this is a must-read book for researchers and practitioners in Europe, and of use to readers outside of Europe too. This book will remain an indispensable backup to Eurocode 8 and its existing Designers’ Guide to EN 1998-1 and EN 1998-5 (published in 2005), for many years to come. Congratulations to the author for a very well planned scope and contents, and for a flawless execution of the plan". AMR S. ELNASHAI "The book is an impressive source of information to understand the response of reinforced concrete buildings under seismic loads with the ultimate goal of presenting and explaining the state of the art of seismic design. Underlying the contents of the book is the in-depth knowledge of the author in this field and in particular his extremely important contribution to the development of the European Design Standard EN 1998 - Eurocode 8: Design of structures for earthquake resistance. However, although Eurocode 8 is at the core of the book, many comparisons are made to other design practices, namely from the US and from Japan, thus enriching the contents and interest of the book".

Warum ein Buch zum erdbebensicheren Bauen? In Europa und auch in Deutschland gibt es stark erdbebengefährdete Gebiete. Das Buch erklärt die Theorie zur Erdbebensicherheit von Bauwerken mit allen seismologischen und baudynamischen Grundlagen. Die Autoren erläutern Berechnungsverfahren nach EC 8, stellen erdbebengerechte Entwurfsgrundsätze als auch die Methode der Kapazitätsbemessung vor. Moderne Gebäude haben oft nur noch ein geringes Eigengewicht. Die Baustoffe mit höheren Festigkeiten lassen größere Abmessungen und Spannweiten zu. Dies konfrontiert Bauwerksplaner, Architekten und Ingenieure zunehmend mit Problemen aus der Einwirkung von zeitabhängigen Lasten auf Bauwerke. Schwerpunkte dieses Titels sind die modernen Technologien des erdbebensicheren Bauens, die passive und aktive Tragverformungskontrolle und Erdbebenisolierung.

Dreizehn Jahre nach dem Erfolg des ersten Romans mit den Abenteuern des kleinbürgerlichen Tartarin aus dem südfranzösischen Tarascon ließ Alphonse Daudet (1840-1897) seinen Helden 1885 wieder auferstehen. Diesmal allerdings zieht es Tartarin nicht in exotische ferne Länder, sondern in die gleich nebenan liegende Schweiz, wo er es auf gewohnt groteske Weise mit einem ganz neuen Phänomen zu tun bekommt: dem gerade populär werdenden Hochgebirgstourismus.

Der Architekturhistoriker Sigfried Giedion gilt als ein Wegbereiter der Moderne, sein 1941 unter dem Titel Space, Time, Architecture erstmals erschienenes Werk ist längst zu einem Klassiker der Architekturtheorie avanciert. Giedion skizziert darin die Vorgeschichte und die Entwicklung des in den Zwanzigerjahren so bedeutungsvollen neuen Bauens und veranschaulicht dessen weltweite Auswirkungen. In der Vielfalt oft widersprüchlicher Tendenzen suchte er die geheime Synthese, in der sich eine neue Tradition ankündigte, ohne dass sie zunächst zu einer bewussten und handlungsbestimmenden Realität wurde. Giedion wurde so zu dem Historiker, der das Entstehen dieser neuen Tradition in der Architektur sowie ihre Beziehungen zu Handwerk, Kunst und Wissenschaft sichtbar machte und so immer noch zur Transparenz des gegenwärtigen Zustands beiträgt. Das Nachwort des Architekturkritikers Reto Geiser erläutert die Aktualität dieses in alle Weltsprachen übersetzten Standardwerks.
