    Seismic Design Solved Problems (SESP6), 6th Edition

    Seismic Design Solved Problems covers relevant seismic topics found on the California Special Civil Engineer Seismic Exam, the California Structural Engineer Seismic Exam, the Civil PE exam, and the Structural SE exam. It contains over 340 practice problems designed to help you recognize critical concepts and apply your knowledge of seismic topics. 

    The qualitative short-answer problems are useful in assessing your comprehension of fundamental seismic engineering concepts. The more-complex design and analysis problems challenge your skill in identifying and applying related theories and equations.

    Key Features

    • Customary U.S. and SI solution methods are both presented where applicable, to maximize comprehension.

    • A nomenclature list is provided to ensure understanding of all terms and variables used.

    • Relevant codes and standards are referenced to improve your familiarity with them before the exam.

    Not cool Review by Robert
    The book was out of date and the website did not make this clear. Not cool.

    Remedial Review by Angie
    I am an engineer in California studying for the SE exam. This book is extremely remedial and contains only the most simple seismic problems. It is not representative of the test at all in terms of difficulty, and is generally a waste of time if you have any previous knowledge of seismic design. If you are finding this book challenging, you have a long way to go before you will pass the lateral portion of the SE exam. (Posted on 9/29/13)

    Glad to have this resource Review by Sandra
    Preparing to take the SE exam for the second time, I am glad to have more resources available than the first time around. Working to make this attempt much more successful than the previous. A comprehensive study guide for the SE written by Michael Lindeburg would be like a gift from heaven. (Posted on 12/17/12)
