Earthquake Resistant Buildings by M.Y.H Bangash Pdf Free Download
Earthquake Resistant Buildings by M.Y.H Bangash. Earth Quake Resistant Buildings Dynamic Analyses, Numerical Computations, Codified Methods, Case Studies and Examples. This book provides a general introduction to the topic of three-dimensional analysis and design of buildings for resistance to the effects of earthquakes. It is intended for a general readership, especially persons with an interest in the
design and construction of buildings under servere loadings.
A major part of design for earthquake resistance involves the building structure, which has a primary role in preventing serious damage or structural
collapse. Much of the material in this book examines building structures and, specifically, their resistance to vertical and lateral forces or in combinations. However, due to recent discovery of the vertical component of acceleration of greater magnitude in the kobes’ earthquake the original concept of ‘‘lateral force only’’ has changed. This book does advocate the contribution of this
disastrous component in the global analytical investigation.
The work in this book is mostly analytical and hence should be accessible to the broad range of people in the building design and construction fields. This calls for some compromise since all are trained highly in some areas and less – or not at all – in others. The readers should have general knowledge of building codes, current construction technology, principal problems of planning buildings and at least an introduction to design of simple structures for earthquake-prone buildings. Most of all, readers need some real motivation for learning about making buildings safer during earthquakes. Many design examples and case studies are included to make the book fully attractive to all and sundry.
Readers less prepared may wish to strengthen their backgrounds in order to get the most from the work in this book. The author gives a vast bibliography at the end of this book and a list of references after each chapter so that the reader can carryout an in-depth study on a specific area missed out in detail. The reader hopefully will understand the need for grappling with this complex subject.
The book consists of 10 major parts: engineering seismology and earthquake resistant analyses and design. Special attention is placed on bridging
the gap between these disciplines. For the convenience of the reader, fundamentals of seismology, earthquake engineering and random processes, which,
can be useful tools to describe the three-dimensional ground motions are given to assess the structural or soil response to them. Vast chapters are included.
