- Steel Structure & Reinforced Concrete Design For Seismic Are
The past many years have witnessed a dramatic increase in urbanization associated with increased population. This increase in the urban population has been accompanied by an equally strong growth in the number of high-rise buildings, residential houses, schools, bridges, water supply pipes, and other infrastructure constructions. Therefore, the proximity of the significant earthquakes to the major population centres, obviously leads to the question of how much damage will be sustained by these buildings, bridges, dams, water supply pipes and other so-called lifelines. The majorities of buildings in many cities in developing countries, were not designed as per strict earthquake design guidelines and could, unfortunately, sustain significant damage varying from total collapse to structural failure that will render them unfit for occupation. An increasing number of buildings, especially those built recently, do not even go through a proper quality control procedure to assure compliance with some basic requirements of the country’s building code standards. As a result, shabby constructions are increasingly becoming a common practice. Most stone and brick masonry buildings have extremely poor connections between the different components and under a significant earthquake load will simply crack and even fall part. The majority of these masonry buildings do not have steel reinforcement and when they do, the reinforcements were not detailed in accordance with earthquake-resistant design requirements. Concrete buildings, on the other hand, will experience, in addition to cracks and foundation failures, beam-column joints failures due to poor reinforcement detailing that could keep them as one unit. This book will specify the role of engineers, architects and contractors and professional organizations in facing this challenge and educating the public about earthquake hazards is critical.
