- Handbook Of Dam Design For Earthquake & Shock Resistance
This Handbook provides the concepts and principles of seismic design, including strategies for designing earthquake-resistant buildings to ensure the health, safety, and security of building occupants and assets. Earthquakes are the shaking, rolling, or sudden shock of the earth’s surface. Basically, the Earth’s crust consists of a series of “plates” floating over the interior, continually moving, spreading from the centre, sinking at the edges, and being regenerated. The essence of successful seismic design is a multi-hazard approach towards design that accounts for the potential impacts of seismic forces as well as all the major hazards to which an area is vulnerable; performance-based requirements, which may exceed the minimum life safety requirements of current seismic codes, must be established to respond appropriately to the threats and risks posed by natural hazards on the building’s mission and occupants, and as important as the others, because earthquake forces are dynamic and each building responds according to its own design complexity, it is essential that the design team work collaboratively and have a common understanding of the terms and methods used in the seismic design process.
