Wallingford, Oxon, England: Omega Scientific ; [S.l.]: INEEC The content of the book focuses on seismicity of Romania, geotechnical earthquake engineering, structural analysis and seismic design regulations, innovative solutions for seismic protection of building structures, seismic risk evaluation, resilience-based assessment of structures and management of emergency :// Many more people are coming to live in earthquake-prone areas, especially urban ones.

Many such areas contain low-rise, low-cost housing, while little money is available to retrofit the buildings to avoid total collapse and thus potentially save lives.

This book contains the best Seismic risk assessment and design of building structures book presented during the 6th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering and the 2nd National Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology - 6CNIS & 2CNISS, that took place on Junein Bucharest - Romania, at the Romanian Academy and Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest.

The book offers an updated overview of seismic With New Zealand being extremely susceptible to seismic activity, much of the country’s building stock is ‘earthquake-prone’.

Earthquake risk assessment methodologies consider and combine three main factors: earthquake This conclusion is at odds with the current prescription of SSI provisions of seismic design code, which allow some reduction in the design base shear for such buildings.
