Seismic Design of
Reinforced and Precast Concrete Buildings
Basics of Seismic Resistant Design of Concrete Structures
By Robert E. Englekirk
the basics of seismic-resistant design of concrete structures with a
major focus on the seismic design of precast bracing systems.
This 848 page hard-cover manual covers the
basic concepts, component behavior and design and systems design of
reinforced and precast concrete buildings.
