Brief and readable, this book analyses various examples of disaster damages of earthquake, tsunami, flood, together with their causal mechanisms. Practical methods to plan and design structures based on their regions, cities, as well as the particular countermeasure.
Disaster Resilient Cities: Concepts and Practical Examples discusses natural disasters, their complexity, and the exploration of different ways of thinking regarding the resilience of structures. The book provides a blueprint for structural designers to better prepare structures for all types of natural hazards during the design stage. Brief and readable, this book analyzes various examples of disaster damage from earthquakes, tsunamis, and floods, together with their causal mechanisms. Practical methods to plan and design structures based on their regions, cities, as well as the particular countermeasures are also included for study.
