ABSTRACT

Earthquake Geotechnical Case Histories for Performance-Based Design is a collection of 26 case histories, each study containing well-instrumented geotechnical and earthquake data. The book is intended to serve as a reference work, since it contains a common scale to develop and implement design methodologies and numerical analyses, so that their re
