An understanding of dynamic effects on structures is critical to minimize losses from earthquakes and other hazards. This book provides an overview of essential topics in structural and geotechnical engineering with an additional focus on related topics in earthquake engineering to enable readers gain such an understanding. One of the ultimate objectives of the book is to provide readers with insights into seismic analysis and design. However, in order to accomplish that objective, background material on structural and geotechnical engineering is necessary. Hence the first two sections of the book provide this background material followed by selected topics in earthquake engineering.

The material is organized into three major parts. The first section covers topics in structural engineering. Beginning with fundamental mechanics of materials, the book includes chapters on linear and nonlinear analysis as well as topics on modeling of structures from different perspectives. In addition to traditional design of structural systems, introductions to important concepts in structural reliability and structural stability are discussed. Also covered are subjects of recent interest, viz., blast and impact effects on structures as well as the use of fiber reinforced polymer composites in structural applications. Given the growing interest in urban renewal, an interesting chapter on restoration of historic cities is also included. The second part of the book covers topics in geotechnical engineering, covering both shallow and deep foundations and issues and procedures for geotechnical modeling. The final part of the book focuses on earthquake engineering with emphasis on both structures and foundations. Here again, the material covered includes both traditional seismic design and innovative seismic protection. And more importantly, concepts in modeling for seismic analysis are highlighted.

Sashi Kunnath is Professor of Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California at Davis (UCD). He received his undergraduate degree from Bangalore University (India), his Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering from the Asian Institute of Technology (Thailand) and his PhD at the University at Buffalo of the State University of New York. His research interests include performance-based seismic engineering, nonlinear modeling of structural behavior and structural response evaluation under extreme loads. He has published over 200 technical papers and reports, chaired and/or co-chaired international symposia, technical sessions at international conferences and workshops, and delivered invited/keynote lectures in China, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, Slovenia and Thailand. He has served on numerous technical committees of ASCE and ACI including the SEI/ASCE Standards committee on Disproportionate Collapse and ACI Committee 377, Performance-Based Structural Integrity & Resilience of Concrete Structures. He formerly served as the Editor-in-Chief of the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering (2003 – 2010) and also chaired the ASCE Technical Administrative Committee on Dynamic Effects and the Technical Committee on Seismic Effects. He has received various research and service awards including: the 2012 Norman Medal from ASCE, the Richard Torrens Award in 2009, the Raymond Reese Research Prize from ASCE in 2008, and the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Structural Research Award in 2001. He is Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (2007), the American Society of Civil Engineers (2010) and the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (2013).
