Description

For courses in Structural Dynamics.

 

Structural dynamics and earthquake engineering for both students and professional engineers

An expert on structural dynamics and earthquake engineering, Anil K. Chopra fills an important niche, explaining the material in a manner suitable for both students and professional engineers with his 5th Edition of Dynamics of Structures: Theory and Applications to Earthquake Engineering. No prior knowledge of structural dynamics is assumed, and the presentation is detailed and integrated enough to make the text suitable for self-study.

 

As a textbook on vibrations and structural dynamics, this book has no competition. The material includes many topics in the theory of structural dynamics, along with applications of this theory to earthquake analysis, response, design, and evaluation of structures, with an emphasis on presenting this often difficult subject in as simple a manner as possible through numerous worked-out illustrative examples. The 5th Edition includes new sections, figures, and examples, along with relevant updates and revisions.

New to this edition

Updates, Improvements, and Expanded Sections in the Fifth Edition

  • Two new sections have been added to Chapter 20, which is now more than twice its previous size. These additions were motivated by the increasing use of nonlinear response history analyses (RHAs) of buildings in professional practice.
  • Individual chapter updates and revisions include:
    • Chapter 13 has been extended to include a response-spectrum-based method to estimate principal stresses in continuum structures, such as concrete dams.
    • Chapters 7, 9, and 18 have been expanded to include P—analysis of gravity load effects and an introduction to their influence on the lateral response, permanent deformation, and collapse of structures.
    • Chapter 11 has been revised to include recent data on damping ratios determined by system-identification analysis of motions of 203 buildings recorded during earthquakes. New recommendations for estimating damping ratios to be used in earthquake analysis of structures are presented.
    • Chapters 22 and 23 have been updated to reflect the current editions of building codes for designing new buildings, and of performance-based guidelines and standards for evaluating existing buildings.
  • Many new figures, several worked-out examples, and end-of-chapter problems have been added.
