Seismic Design of Building Structures provides a comprehensive introduction to core seismic concepts and principles. It offers essential background information for seismic problems on the California Special Civil Seismic exam, the Structural Engineering (SE) exam, and the Architect Registration Examination (ARE). 15 chapters and 16 appendices provide a concise but thorough review of seismic theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. A Comprehensive Review of Seismic Concepts and Principles A thorough review of seismic building codes Easy-to-use formulas, figures, and tables Detailed illustrations and definitions of seismic terminology 129 practice problems 34 example problems A complete index What's New in the 10th Edition?

However, adjustments for other types of irregularity are not adequately accomplished by a dynamic analysis. ... The ASCE/SEI7 code provides much more detailed guidelines about the use of dynamic analysis than earlier buildings codes have provided. ... (It is not practical to perform a dynamic analysis on structures with irregularities by hand.) .
