Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Steven Kramer

Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering Free PDF Download Ebook. Steven Lawrence Kramer focuses particularly on the topic of geotechnical earthquake engineering. It presents comprehensively all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering to offer the readers a slew of normal methods, concept and applications of geotechnical earthquake engineering that will be useful for engineers, graduate college students and professionals.

This book presents all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a complete way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms, experimental research on nonlinear complicated soil behaviour, an evaluation to predict ground behaviour during earthquakes, discipline studies to determine nature of actual floor as enter knowledge for analysis, and harm mitigation technologies.

Information obtained from earthquake injury investigation (comparable to floor movement, landslides, earth stress, fault motion, or liquefaction) as well as data from laboratory assessments and subject investigation is supplied, along with workouts/questions. The book draws from the fields of seismology and structural engineering to present a broad, interdiciplinary view of the elemental concepts in seismology, geotechnical engineering, and structural engineering.

Steve Kramer received his BS, M.Eng., and PhD degrees from the University of California, Berkeley in 1977, 1979, and 1985, respectively. Kramer joined the geotechnical group in the University of Washington Department of Civil Engineering in 1984. He has taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses in geotechnical engineering, and advised numerous graduate students on Masters and Ph.D. research projects.

His primary research interests include soil liquefaction, site response analysis, seismic slope stability, and hazard analysis. Much of his current research work is in the area of performance-based earthquake engineering, specifically the integration of probabilistic response analyses with probabilistic seismic hazard analyses.
