In this post you will download Basis of Structural Design considering Earthquake for Building and public works for freeIn Japan, technical standards for the design of structures have been separately developed for various types, such as public works structures and building structures, or steel structures, concrete structures and foundation structures. Though this has been effective from the aspect of optimizing structural design of each type of structure, the presence of technical standards for every single type of structure may impair the accountability of design, which has been increasingly advocated in recent years.
The Government Procurement Agreement of the WTO (World Trade Organization) requires government organizations of member countries to observe the international standards formulated by the International Organization for Standards (ISO), in which standardization of design and construction is also in progress. Moreover, the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), with an eye to the post-unification European market, is formulating unified standards of design and construction that are very likely to be proposed as ISO standards. The policy of these international standards under formulation tends toward establishment of general technical standards common to most structures while formulating technical standards for each type of structure in regard to matters specific to the characteristics of each type.
Basis of Structural Design considering Earthquake for Building and public works describes about basic concept of structural design for building and public works, prepared by team of professors of Japanese universities.
Japan is most vulnerable to earthquake so they consider seismic loads too during design process. this is very useful to all civil engineers. -
