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.


'The book is to be commended to those engineers sho want to extend their knowledge beyond the basic and who want to tackle the enormous challenges which earthquake engineering introduces.' - The Structural Engineer
