Complete coverage of earthquake-resistant concrete building design

Written by a renowned seismic engineering expert, this authoritative resource discusses the theory and practice for the design and evaluation of earthquakeresistingreinforced concrete buildings. The book addresses the behavior of reinforced concrete materials, components, and systems subjected to routine and extreme loads, with an emphasis on response to earthquake loading.

Design methods, both at a basic level as required by current building codes and at an advanced level needed for special problems such as seismic performance assessment, are described. Data and models useful for analyzing reinforced concrete structures as well as numerous illustrations, tables, and equations are included in this detailed reference.

Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Buildings covers:

  • Seismic design and performance verification
  • Steel reinforcement
  • Concrete
  • Confined concrete
  • Axially loaded members
  • Moment and axial force
  • Shear in beams, columns, and walls
  • Development and anchorage
  • Beam-column connections
  • Slab-column and slab-wall connections
  • Seismic design overview
  • Special moment frames
  • Special structural walls
  • Gravity framing
  • Diaphragms and collectors
  • Foundations
