Couverture de l’ouvrage Earthquake Engineering
This book provides senior undergraduate students and structural engineers lacking a background in the field with core knowledge of structural earthquake engineering that will be invaluable in their professional lives. The basics of seismotectonics, including the causes, magnitude, and intensity of earthquakes, are first explained. Subsequent chapters cover key aspects of the analysis of responses of simple systems and building structures to earthquake ground motions, the adoption of seismic analysis procedures in seismic design codes, and the seismic design of reinforced concrete structures. Helpful worked examples on earthquake-resistant design of frame and frame-shear wall systems are included, most of which can be solved using a hand calculator. The book concludes by introducing basic elements of seismic hazard analysis and presenting the concept of a seismic hazard map for use in seismic design.
Nature of Earthquakes.- Response of Simple Structures to Earthquake Ground Motions.- Response of Building Structures to Earthquake Ground Motions.- Seismic Analysis Procedures in Earthquake Codes.- Seismic Design Principles for RC Structures.- Seismic Hazard Analysis.
Haluk Sucuoğlu is full professor of Civil Engineering at the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, where he also manages the Building and Earthquake Engineering Laboratory.  In addition, he is a member of teaching staff on the earthquake engineering program at Pavia University, Rose School, Italy. Professor Sucuoğlu is the current chairman of the Turkish Earthquake Engineering Association and he represents Turkey in the International Association of Earthquake Engineers (IAEE).  He is a member of the editorial boards of numerous scientific journals.

Sinan Akkar is professor of Civil Engineering at the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey and also a member of teaching staff on the earthquake engineering program at Pavia University, Rose School, Italy. His main research interests are displacement-based seismic assessment and prediction of strong ground-motion parameters for seismic design.  Professor Akkar is currently the Principal Investigator of the Turkish National Strong Motion Project and the NATO Project Director of the Harmonization of Seismic Hazard Maps for the Western Balkan Countries. He is involved in the Seismic Harmonization in Europe project (SHARE, EC-FP7) as a research member.

Covers the seismic hazard, the basics of seismotectonics, and the fundamentals of earthquake engineering

Meets the future professional needs of senior undergraduate students by explaining the principles of earthquake-resistant design

Includes useful sample problems on earthquake-resistant design of frame and frame-shear wall systems
