By T.P. Tassios (auth.), Mihail Garevski, Atilla Ansal (eds.)

This booklet includes nine invited keynote and 12 subject lectures awarded on the 14th ecu convention on Earthquake Engineering (14ECEE) held in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia, from August 30 to September three, 2010. The convention used to be prepared by way of the Macedonian organization for Earthquake Engineering (MAEE), below the auspices of eu organization for Earthquake Engineering (EAEE).

The ebook is prepared in twenty one cutting-edge papers written through rigorously chosen very eminent researchers typically from Europe but additionally from united states and Japan. The contributions supply a really finished number of issues on earthquake engineering, in addition to interdisciplinary topics comparable to engineering seismology and seismic probability evaluation and administration. Engineering seismology, geotechnical earthquake engineering, seismic functionality of structures, earthquake resistant engineering constructions, new suggestions and applied sciences and dealing with threat in seismic areas are all one of the varied subject matters lined during this publication. The booklet additionally contains the 1st Ambraseys exceptional Award Lecture given by way of Prof. Theo P. Tassios within the honor of Prof. Nicholas N. Ambraseys.

The objective is to offer the present country of data and engineering perform, addressing fresh and ongoing advancements whereas additionally projecting leading edge principles for destiny study and improvement. it's not consistently attainable to have such a lot of chosen manuscripts in the large spectrum of earthquake engineering therefore the e-book is exclusive in a single experience and will function a great reference e-book for researchers during this field.


This e-book should be of curiosity to civil engineers within the fields of geotechnical and structural earthquake engineering; scientists and researchers within the fields of seismology, geology and geophysics. not just scientists, engineers and scholars, but additionally these drawn to earthquake risk evaluation and mitigation will locate during this e-book the newest advances.

2004) where microzonation maps were produced with limited number of site investigations and site response analyses using more approximate microzonation procedures. 1 Introduction Seismic microzonation can be considered as the methodology for estimating the response of soil layers under earthquake excitations and the relative variation of earthquake ground motion characteristics on the ground surface for a specific area. The purpose of microzonation is to provide input for urban planning and for the assessment of the vulnerability of the building stock for different hazard (performance) levels.

Replacing stone-blocks or addition of steel elements as shear connectors: along transversal walls intersections, in case of cracks’ stitching, or in case of passing through connectors of three-leaf masonry. – Strengthening of the frames of doors and windows (increase of shear stiffness, increase of nominal strengths of pears and spandrels). a. Vintzileou and Tassios, 1995; Valluzzi, 2000; Tassios, 2004). – Timber or metallic ties: The specific models needed are related to the interface resistance of transversal walls, to the increase of apparent tensile resistance of masonry mega-elements, etc.

Sliding resistance between perpendicular walls, along their widths or their lengths. This very important strength should be evaluated considering (i) direct shear failure of interconnecting blocks, or (ii) deracination of these interconnecting blocks. 1, by means of in-situ strength determinations. To this end, flat-jacks are inserted into appropriately deep horizontal slots, so that an in-situ masonry “specimen” to be shaped and tested. However, it has to be noted that, under these testing conditions, post-elastic deformational capacity of masonry may be clearly overestimated because of the surrounding confining conditions.
