PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON EARTHQUAKE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING HELD AT ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, ON AUGUST 19-21, 1976. VOLUME II

The 89 papers contained in two volumes constitute the symposium proceedings on earthquake structural engineering. Attention is focused on structural design so as to minimize destructive and killing effects of earthquakes. In Volume 2, the following areas are examined: (1) dynamic response characteristics of an elastoplastic structure on a random soil ground, earthquake resistance of structures with suspended masses, and earthquake response of a tall multi-flue stack; (2) comparison of aseismatic steel building design practice in Japan and USA, earthquake dynamic environment with buildings, and earthquake resistant design of a submerged tunnel; (3) structural damage and risk in earthquakes engineering, discrete modeling of containment structures, and seismic risk analysis of nuclear power plant sites; (4) safety of cities during severe earthquakes, evaluation of Greek strong motion records, and behavior of reinforced concrete structures during the Managua earthquake; and (5) discrete modeling of symmetric box-type structures and a new structural model for shear walls analysis.
