Media reviews

At the turn of the last century, builders pondering the havoc wreaked by earthquakes had scant resources to guide their reconstruction efforts. A century later, earthquakes continue tragic devastations of our cities, with one important difference - today's builders can turn to a rich literature in earthquake engineering to guide their reconstruction efforts. This volume on Seismic Assessment and Rehabilitation of Buildings is bound to become one of the valued resources of earthquake engineers who are building to reduce the tragedies of future earthquakes. The volume is filled with brilliant contributions from renowned experts in earthquake engineering. Topics include seismic earthquake strong ground motion, dynamic response of structures, seismic assessment of older hazardous construction, and practical seismic rehabilitation methods derived from extensive laboratory and field research. Many of the contributions have been motivated by the tragic consequences, yet real-world experiences, of the 1999 Kocaeli and Duzce earthquakes in Turkey, and demonstrate the rapid progress that can be inspired by necessity. While the topic of this volume is especially important for Turkey and her neighbors, the lessons learned and clearly presented are universal and should be studied by serious earthquake engineers worldwide. Among the volume's contents is a quote from W. Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act I, Scene III: Are you not mov'd, when all the sway of earth Shakes like a thing unfirm?" The earthquake engineering community can be thankful that Professors S. Tanvir Wasti and Guney A-zcebe, Middle East Technical University, were moved to organize the workshop and associated papers that form the contents of this memorable volume. Their effort, documented in this volume, is one of great and lasting value." (Jack Moehle, Professor and Director, Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center, University of California, Berkeley (July 2003)
