Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Geotechnique Symposium in Print

Author(s): Stuart Haigh (ed.)
Publication date: 16 November 2015
ISBN: 9780727761491
£78.75
The many large earthquakes of the last decade, including the series in Christchurch in 2010-2011 and the Tohoku earthquake in Japan, have focused even greater attention on the cyclic behaviour of soils during these events. Great advances have recently been made on all aspects of soil dynamics, from the prediction of liquefaction based on site inves

Shock Transmission Units in Construction

Author(s): Dinesh J. Patel
Publication date: 17 October 2013
ISBN: 9780727757135
£78.75
Recent earthquakes around the world have confirmed the potential for a large seismic event to cause unprecedented levels of destruction.
