While numerous books have been written on earthquakes, earthquake
resistance design, and seismic analysis and design of structures,
none have been tailored for advanced students and practitioners,
and those who would like to have most of the important aspects of
seismic analysis in one place. With this book, readers will gain
proficiencies in the following: fundamentals of seismology that all
structural engineers must know; various forms of seismic inputs;
different types of seismic analysis like, time and frequency domain
analyses, spectral analysis of structures for random ground motion,
response spectrum method of analysis; equivalent lateral load
analysis as given in earthquake codes; inelastic response analysis
and the concept of ductility; ground response analysis and seismic
soil structure interaction; seismic reliability analysis of
structures; and control of seismic response of structures.

  • Provides comprehensive coverage, from seismology to seismic

  • Contains useful empirical equations often required in the
    seismic analysis of structures

  • Outlines explicit steps for seismic analysis of MDOF systems
    with multi support excitations

  • Works through solved problems to illustrate different

  • Makes use of MATLAB, SAP2000 and ABAQUAS in solving example
    problems of the book

  • Provides numerous exercise problems to aid understanding of the

As one of the first books to present such a comprehensive
treatment of the topic, Seismic Analysis of Structures is
ideal for postgraduates and researchers in Earthquake Engineering,
Structural Dynamics, and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering.
Developed for classroom use, the book can also be used for advanced
undergraduate students planning for a career or further study in
the subject area. The book will also better equip structural
engineering consultants and practicing engineers in the use of
standard software for seismic analysis of buildings, bridges, dams,
and towers.
