"Despite the recent advances in our ability to predict many of Earth's natural phenomena, determining exactly when and where an earthquake will occur remains a mystery that may never be solved. However, the techniques employed to mitigate the damage caused by earthquakes to our built environment continue to be improved. Fundamental Concepts of Earthquake Engineering presents the concepts, procedures, and code provisions that are currently being used to make structures as earthquake-resistant as is presently feasible." "While successfully preventing earthquakes may still be beyond the capacity of modern engineering, the ability to mitigate damages with strong structural designs and other mitigation measures are well within the purview of science. This volume is a comprehensive resource that is certain to advance the knowledge of those tasked with taking preemptive action against the devastating effects of major catastrophic earthquakes."--Jacket.
