 About the Book 

This volume provides a thorough exploration of seismic isolation, an innovative performancebased design approach, which can be used to minimize earthquake induced loads, and to mitigate or reduce resulting damage in low-to medium-rise buildings.MoreThis volume provides a thorough exploration of seismic isolation, an innovative performancebased design approach, which can be used to minimize earthquake induced loads, and to mitigate or reduce resulting damage in low-to medium-rise buildings. Written by a leading specialist in the field, it will enable practicing engineers and students to understand this alternative concept and how it can be utilized in an effort to successfully encounter strong earthquakes and to alleviate both their economic and human consequences.
