By Mete A. Sözen (auth.), A. Tugrul Tankut (eds.)

Earthquakes and tsunamis are significant common mess ups, inflicting huge, immense lifestyles and fabric losses over the total international, specially within the constructing international locations that aren't prepared. seeing that earthquakes and tsunamis are common phenomena that can not be avoided, a chain of measures must be taken to reduce the losses. catastrophe mitigation covers a large choice of actions concerning a number of disciplines. Civil engineering makes the most potent contribution to the mitigation of existence and fabric losses in earthquakes and tsunamis.

This quantity includes eleven significant contributions of unusual specialists from numerous parts of civil engineering, and goals at informing the civil engineering neighborhood in regards to the contemporary growth in catastrophe mitigation referring to earthquakes and tsunamis. it really is designed to deal with the normal practising civil engineer with the purpose of wearing the medical study effects to the engineering perform in basic engineering language.

Rehabilitation is not only science but art. Retrofitting should not be attempted before understanding the problems involved in that particular building. If the building is damaged, the cause of damage should be clearly identified prior to retrofitting. The choice of retrofitting technique depends very much on the nature of problems involved, architectural restrictions and functional requirements. It is also important to know the cost of interrupting the functionality. In some cases cost of interruption can be the determining factor in selecting the retrofit technique to be used.
