Q: Handy Text on Earthquake Resistant Design for Light Commercial Buildings?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Well, the IBC 2000 is finally here, and there's just enough seismic stuff
here in Texas to have to start worrying about it. Time for me to bone
up-it's been about ten years and I know things have changed!

Can anyone recommend a good textbook/handbook with basic examples of solved
problems involving design of smaller buildings for seismic forces?
Understand I am not looking to design a high- or even mid-rise building,
just one or two or three stories.

I'd be interested to hear recommendations.
