Description

Seismic Evaluation, Damage, and Mitigation in Structures covers recent developments in the area of seismic performance assessment of structures. Divided into four parts, the book evaluates earthquake-induced damage, repair costs of structural and non-structural components, building demolition, and seismic damage mitigation strategies. With contributions from the leading experts in the field, this book is for earthquake and structural engineers and PhD students studying civil engineering and for those who understand that design and damage mitigation of structures that have limited structural or non-structural damage in a seismic event can be easy to inspect and repair for quick reoccupation.Earthquakes are one of the main natural hazards that could directly cause damages to or collapse of structures, resulting in significant economic and human life losses. In the event of an earthquake where many buildings and infrastructure components are not able to function afterward, or if extensive repair and associated disruption are needed, it can be very costly and take a long time to resolve.

Key Features

  • Provides effective and economical methods to assess the seismic performance of structures

Paul O. Awoyera

Paul Awoyera is a 2016 Commonwealth and University of Nottingham Split-site PhD Scholarship winner. He obtained his PhD in civil engineering (structures and materials) from Covenant University, Nigeria in 2018. He has previously worked as a professional civil engineer on numerous projects, covering structural design and construction, subsoil investigation, concrete waterproofing and non-destructive testing. His research interests include non-destructive testing/evaluation of reinforced concrete structures, forensic investigation of distressed structural members, and the use of recycled materials in civil engineering applications. Paul is a registered engineer with the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), a member of the International Association for Engineers (IAENG), and a corporate member of the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE). He has published over 80 articles in high-profile journals and has also served as an editor/editorial board member and reviewer for numerous international journals.
