Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings

  • Book

  • August 2020
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 4991103

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings covers various structures, effective parameters in seismic improvement, and other factors in seismic loading in eight applied chapters with descriptive classification. The book offers guidance for a seismic rehabilitation project based on the interpretation of publications FEMA and Iranian seismic rehabilitation regulations no.360 . It includes real examples of completed and approved projects to stabilize the seismic improvement issues of existing buildings. Six perfectly executed examples, with complete refinement details, such as modeling, step-by-step improvement studies, and executive plans and seismic enhancement images are included. The book also explains the classification of non-structural element and how to carry out it's seismic reconstruction studies and in one of the chapters, construction and soil improvement methods are discussed along with a practical example.The concepts of seismic rehabilitation in this book are presented with an Info-graphic structure that better fixes the concepts in the minds of readers so that when they face a new project, they have a more practical use of the content

Reza Mokarram Aydenlou ASCE, VDI, Consultant Structural Engineer, Tehran, Iran. Reza Mokarram AydenLou has been approved as a professional member of the American society of civil engineers (ASCE) and Association of German Engineers (VDI). He is as a mentor in ASCE collaborate. He has been trained as a professional seismic rehabilitation engineer by the faculty of international institute of earthquake engineering and society .He is interested in research, so he focuses on issues that can disrupt human life. In this regard, he has always tried to gather existing solutions to find new solutions for them. Therefore, it has expanded its research in the field of providing safe housing for human beings in the face of seismic damage. In line with his research, after fifteen years work in consulting and reputable companies as a professional designer and seismic rehabilitation engineer for famous projects such as high-rise building, bridge , non-structure components and other types of building structures . His keen interest in training young and interested engineers led him authored several specialized books. He is keen on developing seismic science and share his knowledge with disadvantaged areas by transferring this technical knowledge in the form of his books. He has deeply tried to introduce the reader to the topics in depth, So that the content is kept in the reader's mind for a long time. He is a pragmatic researcher therefore, his approach in his books is to train professional expert to enter professional research and the job market. The main purpose of his book is "Become a Seismic Rehabilitation Engineer".
