Earthquake engineering deals with the study of earthquake forces and its effects on the buildings and structures.

Performance Levels of Buildings Against Earthquakes

Performance level of structures against earthquakes describes limiting damage condition that assumed to be satisfactory for a given building and a given ground motion.Moreover, building damages, danger to life safety of occupants in the building due to the damage, and ...

Factors Affecting Degree of Earthquake Damages to Buildings

Various factors such as brittle columns, stiffness elements, flexible ground floor, short columns, shapes, sizes, number of storeys, type of foundation, location of adjacent buildings, structural layouts etc. affects the degree of damages to buildings during earthquakes.These factors which influence ...

Performance of Cable Supported Bridges During Earthquakes

Cable supported bridges perform better during earthquakes compared to other types of bridges. There are seismic weak points in cable supported bridges which are likely to become source of damages when the structure experiences an earthquake.It is thought by most bridge ...

Seismic Design of Retaining Wall

Seismic design of retaining wall is considerably complicated problem in which assumptions have to be considered in order to make indeterminable issue solvable employing theory of statics and differential calculus.The computation of each static and dynamic pressure acting on retaining ...
