By: Baker, Jack [VerfasserIn]Contributor(s): Bradley, Brendon [VerfasserIn] | Stafford, Peter [VerfasserIn]Material type: TextTextLanguage: English Publication details: Cambridge, United Kingdom New York, NY Port Melbourne New Delhi Singapore Cambridge University Press 2021 Description: xii, 581 Seiten Illustrationen 27 cmContent type: Text Media type: ohne Hilfsmittel zu benutzen Carrier type: BandISBN: 9781108425056Subject(s): Earthquake hazard analysis | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / Petroleum | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / PetroleumAdditional physical formats: No title; Erscheint auch als: No titleDDC classification: 624.1/762 LOC classification: QE539.2.S34Other classification: TG 4000 | 38.38 Summary: "An overview of the essential principles of seismic hazard and risk analysis, including advanced topics, worked examples and problem sets. (20) An overview of the essential principles and procedures of seismic hazard and risk analysis, of interest to earth scientists and engineers. Coverage includes state-of-the-art procedures, advanced topics, and future research directions. Each chapter includes worked examples and problem sets, with solutions and computer codes provided online. (46/341) Probabilistic Seismic Hazard and Risk Analyses underpin the loadings prescribed by engineering design codes, the decisions by asset owners to retrofit structures, the pricing of insurance policies, and many other activities. This is a comprehensive overview of the principles and procedures behind seismic hazard and risk analysis. It enables readers to understand best practises and future research directions. Early chapters cover the essential elements and concepts of seismic hazard and risk analysis, while later chapters shift focus to more advanced topics. Each chapter includes worked examples and problem sets for which full solutions are provided online. Appendices provide relevant background in probability and statistics. Computer codes are also available online to help replicate specific calculations and demonstrate the implementation of various methods. This is a valuable reference for upper level students and practitioners in civil engineering, and earth scientists interested in engineering seismology. (143)"--
