Earthquake-resistant Concrete Structures – George G. Penelis

Earthquake engineering, as an independent field of science, may by considered as a development of the last 40-50 years. The installation of dense networks of accelerographs worldwide, the feasibility of analysing complicated structures in both the elastic and the inelastic stage of their dynamic response using the recently developed powerful computers, the experimental testing of structural members and subassemblages under inelastic load reversals including inelastic response, the development of earthquake simulators for studying structural models, the refinement and the extensive use of in situ measuring techniques, and finally the broadening of the knowledge regarding the behaviour of soil, either in free-field conditions or in interaction with the structures, constitute significant steps towards the development of this relatively new field of engineering.
