Steel Structures - Analysis and Design for Vibrations and Earthquakes

Steel Structures - Analysis and Design for Vibrations and Earthquakes 

Ghosh, Karuna Moy

Preference :

In this book, the author addresses the behavior of a structure under the action of earthquakes and the dynamic effects of unbalanced rotating masses of machines. These are the two most common complex vibration problems. Seismic motions of the ground cause a structure to vibrate. Similarly, an unbalanced rotating mass of a machine generates vibrations and transmits these to the supporting structure. So, before we proceed to analyze and design the structure, it will be the chief objective to evaluate the design parameters so that a safe, sustainable structure can be designed. In order to evaluate the design parameters, we should have a clear understanding of the concepts of seismology and the fundamentals of moving periodic or impact loads (dynamic loads) acting on a machine supporting structure.
