Bridge Engineering: Seismic Design covers the crucial effects of earthquakes on bridges, and sets forth the principles and applications of seismic design, from the necessary geotechnical and dynamic analysis background to seismic isolation and energy dissipation, active control, and retrofit technology. The informative text is an authoritative treatment of seismic considerations, and contains in-depth discussions contributed by bridge and earthquake engineers from around the world. Earthquake damage and structural performance criteria is discussed in detail, and the book also includes an overview of seismic design practices in Japan, including a study of the damage to highway bridges caused by the Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake and the changes in retrofit practices precipitated by that earthquake. 480 pp.
