About this book

This book gathers 23 papers by top experts from 11 countries, presented at the 3rd Houston International Forum: Concrete Structures in Earthquake. Designing infrastructures to resist earthquakes has always been the focus and mission of scientists and engineers located in tectonically active regions, especially around the “Pacific Rim of Fire” including China, Japan, and the USA. The pace of research and innovation has accelerated in the past three decades, reflecting the need to mitigate the risk of severe damage to interconnected infrastructures, and to facilitate the incorporation of high-speed computers and the internet. The respective papers focus on the design and analysis of concrete structures subjected to earthquakes, advance the state of knowledge in disaster mitigation, and address the safety of infrastructures in general. 

About the authors

Thomas Hsu is a Moores Professor of Civil Engineering at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Houston. Professor Hsu has been the Principal or Co-Principal Investigator on various funded projects for over 30 years, and has received project funding amounting to over $3.5 million, including 14 grants from the National Science Foundation totaling $2.2 million. He established the University of Houston’s widely recognized Structural Research Laboratory and has supported over thirty Ph.D., M.S., and post-doctoral students. His research work has formed the basis for the shear and torsion design provisions in the American Concrete Institute Building Code. His current research interests are in concrete, concrete structures, and structural mechanics. He has won numerous awards for his teaching and research, and has authored and edited 3 books on reinforced concrete.
