Seismic Design of Concrete Buildings to Eurocode

Seismic Design of Concrete Buildings to Eurocode 

Michael N. Fardis

Preference :

The main aim of this book, published at the time Eurocode 8 is starting its course as the only seismic design standard in Europe, is to support its application to concrete buildings – the most common type of structure – through education and training. It is addressed to graduate or advanced undergraduate students who want to acquire the skills and knowledge that are necessary for the informed use of Eurocode 8 in their career, to practitioners wishing to expand their professional activity into the seismic design with Eurocode 8, to instructors of such students or practitioners in University or professional training programs, to researchers and academics interested in seismic analysis and design of concrete buildings, to software developers, code writers, to those with some official responsibility for the use and application of Eurocode 8, and so on. Besides its prime aim as a support document for education and training in seismic design of concrete buildings with Eurocode 8, the book complements the currently available background documents for the present version of Eurocode 8 as far as RC buildings are concerned; as such, it will be useful for the coming evolution process of Part 1 of Eurocode 8.
