Introduction to Dynamics of Structures and Earthquake Engineering, Hardback Book

Introduction to Dynamics of Structures and Earthquake Engineering Hardback

Part of the Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering series



This work is an elementary but comprehensive textbook which provides the latest updates in the fields of Earthquake Engineering, Dynamics of Structures, Seismology and Seismic Design, introducing relevant new topics to the fields such as the Neodeterministic method.

Its main purpose is to illustrate the application of energy methods and the analysis in the frequency domain with the corresponding visualization in the Gauss-Argant plan.

However, emphasis is also given to the applications of numerical methods for the solution of the equation of motion and to the ground motion selection to be used in time history analysis of structures.

As supplementary materials, this book provides "OPENSIGNAL", a rare and unique software for ground motion selection and processing that can be used by professionals to select the correct earthquake records that would run in the nonlinear analysis.

The book contains clear illustrations and figures to describe the subject in an intuitive way.

It uses simple language and terminology and the math is limited only to cases where it is essential to understand the physical meaning of the system.

Therefore, it is suitable also for those readers who approach these subjects for the first time and who only have a basic understanding of mathematics (linear algebra) and static analysis of structures.
