Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures for Controlled Inelastic Response
This detailed guide will enable the reader to understand the relative importance of the numerous parameters involved in seismic design and the relationships between them, as well as the motivations behind the choices adopted by the codes. For a structure to remain elastic under its design seismic action, typically associated with a 10 per cent exceedance probability in 50 years, it has to be designed for lateral forces with magnitude in the order of 50 per cent or more of its weight.
