Book Description

A state-of-the-art summary of recent developments in the behaviour, analysis and design of seismic resistant steel frames. Much more than a simple background volume, it gives the most recent results which can be used in the near future to improve the codified recommendations for steel structures in seismic zones. It contains new material which cannot be found in any standard reference book on seismic engineering.

Table of Contents

Preface. Notation. Basic seismic design criteria. Global ductility of MR-frames. Local ductility of steel beams and beam-columns. Evaluation of the q-factor. Overall stability effects. Behaviour of connections. Seismic behaviour of semirigid frames. Structural regularity. Influence of random material variability. Influence of claddings. Index.
