GEOTECHNICAL EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING IKUO TOWHATA PDF

About this title This fascinating new book examines the issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a comprehensive way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms as well as a number of other relevant topics. From the Back Cover: This book presents all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a comprehensive way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms, experimental studies on nonlinear complex soil behaviour, an analysis to predict ground behaviour during earthquakes, field studies to determine nature of real ground as input data for analysis, and damage mitigation technologies. Review: From the reviews: "This book

Its publication was made possible by a financial support supplied by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. As for education, I was told for the first time in to teach soil dynamics in Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand. I collected experimental and field findings from many publications and made a small series of handouts.

Since computer technologies were not well advanced in mid 80s, the handouts were products of cut-and-paste in the physical sense. Many pages were even handwritten. Afterwards, I started to teach the same subject in at University of Tokyo. Since then I have added more information from field investigation and laboratory tests as well as analyses.

It has become possible to put all in an electronic media that makes teaching easier. Readers can find that this book includes Japanese writing among English text. This is because I use this text for teaching in Tokyo. The main aim of this book is a collection of data which is useful in understanding the state-of-art technology and its application to new topics. Understanding the fundamental issues is important because practice makes use of many assumptions, hypotheses, and way of thinking.

It has been my policy to show reasons why practice employs those ideas by showing experimental and field backgrounds. This idea does not change even today.

Damage ; Deformation ; Earthquake ; Fault ; Liquefaction ; Shaking Introduction In the modern community, there are a variety of problems caused by earthquakes, including such traditional ones as collapse of buildings and slope failures as well as lifeline problems and economic damages which became important in the recent times. Thus, new types of problem have been recognized as our culture and civilization change with time. It is also important to know that the safety demand is rising continuously with time. Earthquake engineering addresses a large number of issues that are related with the past experiences of damage, their causative mechanisms and mitigations. Because of the complexity of the problem, the issues to be discussed range widely from geological and mechanical topics to societal and legal issues. It is obviously impossible for one author to deal with everything.
