This book presents all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a comprehensive way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms, experimental studies on nonlinear complex soil behaviour, an analysis to predict ground behaviour during earthquakes, field studies to determine nature of real ground as input data for analysis, and damage mitigation technologies. Information obtained from earthquake damage investigation (such as ground motion, landslides, earth pressure, fault action, or liquefaction) as well as data from laboratory tests and field investigation is supplied, together with exercises/questions.
From the reviews: "This book ! is an encyclopedic assemblage of basic and practical science on state-of-the-art engineering technology dealing with the behavior of earth materials subject to earthquakes and derivative effects. ! Hundreds of graphs, charts, and mathematical relationships are skillfully integrated with the text and photographs. This volume is truly monumental. It should be in the libraries of all geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (T. L. T. Grose, Choice, Vol. 46 (2), October, 2008)
