Basic Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering KAMALESH KUMAR

Book Description

The effect of earthquakes on people and their environment as well as methods of reducing these effects is studied in earthquake engineering. It is a new discipline, with most of the developments in the past 30 to 40 years. Most earthquake engineers have a structural or geotechnical engineering background.

This book covers geotechnical aspects of earthquake engineering. Geotechnical earthquake engineering is an area within geotechnical engineering. It deals with the design and construction of projects in order to resist the effect of earthquakes.

Geotechnical earthquake engineering requires an understanding of geology, seismology, and earthquake engineering. Furthermore, the practice of geotechnical earthquake engineering also requires consideration of social, economic, and political factors. In seismology, the internal behavior of the earth, as well as the nature of seismic waves generated by earthquakes, is studied.
