Earthquake Resistant Design of Buildings

Book


Abstract


  • Introducing important concepts in the study of earthquakes related to retrofitting of structures to be made earthquake resistant. The book investigates the pounding effects on base-isolated buildings, the soil-structure-interaction effects on adjacent buildings due to the impact, the seismic protection of adjacent buildings and the mitigation of earthquake induced vibrations of two adjacent structures. These concepts call for a new understanding of controlled systems with passive-active dampers and semi-active dampers. The passive control strategy of coupled buildings is investigated for seismic protection in comparison to active and semi-active control strategies.
