Seismic Design of Building Structures: A Professional’s Introduction to Earthquake Forces and Design Details by Michael R. Lindeburg, Majid Baradar pdf free download.
Seismic Design of Building Structures provides essential background instruction for the seismic problems on the civil PE exam. Using relevant codes, this book presents topics from basic seismic concepts through detailing requirements. The 30 sample problems and 113 practice problems, all with step-by-step solutions, offer valuable preparation for the exam. The eighth edition references the 1997 Uniform Building Code, the version of the code currently tested on the exam.
Exam subjects covered include:
Analysis of diaphragms
Detailing of roof-wall connections
Calculating chord and strut forces
UBC nailing requirements
I downloaded this book to study for the PE Structural 1. It is a thorough, item by item book that has excellent symbol references, clear definitions, worked examples etc. The author is interested on you, the reader, understanding seismic design, unlike many of the other books on the market that cater to someone impressing their literary peers. The UBC 97 was a landmark in Seismic design, and although I agree with the other reviews that it may seem “out of date”, I found it helpful to use this book to learn the fundamentals regading seismic, which are still the same in today’s codes. Excellent chapters on vibration and diagphragm analysis. All I can say is that it helped me tremendously in the PE, which is the reason I downloaded it.
