    Seismic Design of Building Structures: A Professional’s Introduction to Earthquake Forces and Design Details, 11th Edition (SEIS11P)

    Seismic Design of Building Structures presents the seismic design concepts most essential to engineers, architects, and students of civil and structural engineering, and architecture. The book’s 15 chapters provide a concise but thorough review of seismic theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. The 30 example problems demonstrate how to apply concepts, codes, and equations to solve realistic problems. More than 125 practice problems provide opportunities for independent problem-solving practice, and complete solutions allow you to check your solution approach.



    This book includes two comprehensive indexes—one of key terms and another of seismic building codes—to quickly direct you to the information you are looking for. You can also locate related support material by following references throughout the text to the 150 equations, 29 tables, 144 figures, and 16 appendices, and to relevant codes and standards.

    As a practicing I have found Michael Lindeburg's book simply ... Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    As a practicing I have found Michael Lindeburg's book simply invaluable. It spans the lecture room and the design office effortlessly. Reading the first three chapters was akin to a refresher course in tectonic geology. If I had to say something less charitable it would probably be the need for more connection and joint details to address the horrific shear generated at these points. Lastly, the cost. To me its a tax deductible, but to students on a tight budget it can be a nightmare, comparable to ground acceleration of 5 g's. (Posted on 5/2/2016)

    Interesting book. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    Interesting book. Convenient to both systems of measurement SI and USA, with resolved problems. (Posted on 5/2/2016)

    What you need. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    Very technical, but perfect for the California Civil Engineering Exam. This book goes into exacting detail into all kinds of seismic design categories; hooks, crossties, hoops... as well as seismic-resistant concrete structure and newer architecture skins. There's also a good section on vibration theory, seismology, and other scientific topics along with practice problems. Most importantly, all of it conforms to the 1012 International Building Code (should be used in conjunction with both the IBC and ASCE/SE17). (Posted on 2/12/2015)
