Emphasizes actual structural design, not analysis, of multistorybuildings for seismic resistance. Strong emphasis is placed on specificdetailing requirements for construction. Fundamental design principlesare presented to create buildings that respond to a wide range ofpotential seismic forces, which are illustrated by numerous detailedexamples. The discussion includes the design of reinforced concreteductile frames, structural walls, dual systems, reinforced masonrystructures, buildings with restricted ductility and foundation walls.In addition to the examples, full design calculations are given forthree prototype structures.
