About this book

This book offers a broad perspective on important topics in earthquake geotechnical engineering and gives specialists and those that are involved with research and application a more comprehensive understanding about the various topics. Consisting of eighteen chapters written by authors from the most seismic active regions of the world, such as USA, Japan, Canada, Chile, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Taiwan, and Turkey, the book reflects different views concerning how to assess and minimize earthquake damage. The authors, a prominent group of specialists in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering, are the invited lecturers of the International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering from Case History to Practice in the honour of Professor Kenji Ishihara held in Istanbul, Turkey during 17-19 June 2013.

Reviews

“The papers in this collection represent cutting-edge research in geotechnical fields from researchers around the world … . there are papers that would appeal to engineering practitioners, this volume is best suited for graduate students and other researchers working in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty.” (M. Roberts, Choice, Vol. 53 (4), December, 2015)
