Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings offers a comprehensive view of the structural damage caused by the earthquake before it occurs.it seems according to below reasons earthquake force should be considered a major threat in many existing buildings :

1- If the design regulations used at the time of design of the structure did not fully consider the seismic conditions for the existing building

2. Given the quality of construction and future changes to the existing building

3. Environmental and Construction Threats Occasionally, which will endanger the original design of the existing building and their performance

In this book, the author applies the tools and techniques needed for the practical application of seismic improvement function, damage detection, and retrofitting methods. This book offers complete guidance for a seismic rehabilitation project; its content has been developed on the interpretation of FEMA 356, similar approval publications, and author experience in seismic rehabilitation projects. The reader will know the full seismic rehabilitation process and title such as, identifying the damage easily, presenting the tests and agenda, and finally introducing seismic rehabilitation methods in a fully functional way. The book includes real examples of completed and approved projects for stabilizing the seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings in the reader's mind. Six perfectly executed examples, with complete refinement details, such as modelling and systematic improvement studies, and executive plans and seismic enhancement images.

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings, attempts to consolidate content with a practical application in the mind of the reader by using the image retention technique in mind. In this regard, when they are faced with a project, they will immediately remember that image and prepare a seismic rehabilitation algorithm for their project. At the last chapter of the book, the author presents as the infographic methods the seismic rehabilitation for each type of existing building.

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings explains the classification of non-structural elements and how to carry out seismic rehabilitation studies of these elements. This includes staircases, mechanical installations and electrical installations, and building facades. The book presented to fully familiarize the reader with phenomena such as liquefaction, faulting, scouring, and other possible site threats on the structure and their seismic rehabilitation methods.

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings was authored with the approach of becoming a seismic rehabilitation engineer.

  • Provides a fully functional way to evaluate, model, and provide details of a seismic rehabilitation plan for a building
  • Provide real seismic rehabilitation models and step by step method by using examples (including images, tables and charts)
  • Civil engineers with any level of technical knowledge can use this book, in this case info graphic methods are used to remember the book contents in a long-term memory
