    California Civil Seismic Building Design, eTextbook presents the seismic design concepts most essential to engineers, architects, and students of civil and structural engineering, and architecture and one year access is only available at PPI. The eTextbook’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 eTextbook 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.

    A slight update to the 11th edition Review by Stephen
    It is a natural progression of the seismic series. I'm not sure it needed "California" in the title, as it applies for the SE Lateral section no matter where you take it. The first four chapters are esoteric. While I found them interesting, they are too short to be a real lesson on the theory of multi-directional vibrations. I was a little disappointed in the material-specific sections - I thought those parts should have been expanded a little further.

    As usual, the PPI books are well organized, the example problems and solutions are easy to follow and errata is up to date. (Posted on 12/5/2019)
