WIND and EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BUILDINGS STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN PDF

WIND and EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT BUILDINGS STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN By John A. Martin & Associates, Inc.

Book Description:

Developed as a resource for practicing engineers, while simultaneously serving as a text in a formal classroom setting, Wind and Earthquake Resistant Buildings provides a fundmental understanding of the behavior of steel, concrete, and composite building structures. The text format follows, in a logical manner, the typical process of designing a building, from the first step of determining design loads, to the final step of evaluating its behavior for unusual effects. Includes a worksheet that takes the drudgery out of estimating wind response. The book presents an in-depth review of wind effects and outlines seismic design, highlighting the dymamic behavior of buildings. It covers the design and detailing the requirements of steel, concrete, and composite buidlings assigned to seismic design categories A through E. The author explains critical code specific items and structural concepts by doing the nearly impossible feat of addressing the history, reason for existence, and intent of major design provisions of the building codes. While the scope of the book is intentionally broad, it provides enough in-depth coverage to make it useful for structural engineers in all stages of their careers. Features
Discusses the latest approaches for calculating lateral forces using the newly published ASCE 7-02 provisions
Describes the static, dynamic, and time-history analysis of using seismic design provisions of ASCE 7-02, IBC 2003, NFPA 5000, AISC 341-02, ACI 318-02, FEMA 350 and 356, UBC 1997, and the Blue Book-1997
Explores traditional and newer types of bracing systems and allows the reader to attain a fundamental understanding of their behavior
Covers the restoration of damaged or seismically vulnerable buildings with a special emphasis on seismic rehabilitation of hospitals and schools
Elucidates the differences between a “code-sponsored design and an alternate design philosophy based on the concept of Ductility Trade-Off for Strength”
Highlights earthquake hazard mitigation technologies including seismic base isolation, passive energy dissipation, and damping systems
Provides an abundance of examples applicable to real buildings and includes just enough explanations to drive home the underlying basic principles
