Earthquake-Resistant Design of Building Structures provides up-to-date advanced research in the seismic analysis and design. It is an excellent technical resource material for not only undergraduates but also graduate students in Civil and Structural Engineering as well as Practicing Engineers and Architects. It is a good reference material for research scholars. The book starts with a discussion on seismology, seismic measurements, seismic effects on structures, estimation of seismic demand on structures; covers the analysis and design of the structure for seismic resistance, load-resisting mechanisms, lateral load-resisting capacity of the structures.
