Design of Steel Structures for Buildings in Seismic Areas

Manual/designers guide by Raffaele Landolfo, Federico Mazzolani, Dan Dubina, Luís Simões da Silva and Mario D'Aniello

European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS), 2017

The book deals with the seismic design of steel structures based on EN 1998-1 (2004). It contains the essentials of theoretical background of seismic engineering, design requirements and detailing rules for building applications.

Calculation examples are included in the relevant chapters in order to provide a better understanding to the Reader. In addition, the book provides insights about the design assisted by testing as well as some design examples of real buildings: Tower Centre International, in Bucharest, awarded in 2007 with the ECCS Steel Design Award, a low-rise industrial building in Romania and the seismic design of the Fire Station in Naples, awarded in 1986 with the ECCS Steel Design Award.
