This book focuses on earthquake-resistant structures which can withstand major earthquakes. It comprises of research works contributed by various experts and researchers in the field of earthquake engineering. The book provides an overview of latest developments and advances related to earthquake-resistant structures. The book discusses seismic-resistance design of masonry and reinforcement of concrete structures and safety measurements, strengthening and rehabilitation of existing structures against earthquake loads. It also covers topics dedicated to seismic bearing capacity of shallow foundations, seismic behavior and retrofits of infilled frames, and also provides case studies related to seismic damage estimation in Mexico and vulnerability of buildings in western China. The book should be useful to graduate students, researchers and practicing structural engineers.
