An understanding of the behavior of structural systems must be acquired before engineers can effectively design a complex building system. Wind and Earthquake Resistant Buildings describes the typical process of designing a building, from the determination of design loads to the evaluation of its behavior for unusual effects.
Chapters cover a broad range of topics, including wind effects, seismic design, traditional and newer types of bracing systems, and the restoration of damaged or seismically vulnerable buildings. The information is presented in a user-friendly format that allows a fundamental understanding of the behavior of steel, concrete, and composite building structures.
