"This is a massive and most impressive book. This reviewer is not aware of an equal in the international literature. It will serve as an authoritative reference in the field for years to come." -Michael N. Fardis, University of Patras, Greece "This book represents the culmination of over two decades of research by the authors, in which they have sought to link the demands of various types of earthquakes to the ability of steel frame structures to withstand these without suffering undue distress. It is extremely comprehensive and thorough in its treatment - utilising, where appropriate, the contributions of others - and is written by two individuals who have contributed a lifetime of study to the subject area. By fusing the twin aspects of demand and supply it goes beyond the normal treatments, in which specialist texts deal either with Engineering Seismology (normally without taking the subject into the 'design requirements' phase) or the Steelwork Design aspects separately." --Professor David Nethercot, Imperial College London, UK
Federico M. Mazzolani is emeritus professor of structural engineering at the University of Naples "Federico II," doctor Honoris Causa in the Universities of Timisoara and Bucarest, member of the Royal Academy of Engineers of Spain and of the Academy of Engineers of Czech Republic, chairman of the STESSA Conference on the "Behaviour of Steel Structures in Seismic Areas," and chairman of many national/international code committees and research projects. He has authored more than 800 papers, 50 monographs, and 34 books (26 in English, 2 in Chinese) on structural analysis and design, steel and aluminum structures, earthquake engineering, and structural restoration. Victor Gioncu, PhD, was professor of structural design at the Politehnica Univerity of Timisoara, honorary professor of the Technical University of Budapest, doctor Honoris Causa of the Technical University of Cluj, and member of the Academy of Technical Sciences of Romania. He published over 250 papers and 16 books (7 in English) and designed over 100 realized building structures. He has participated in over 60 national and international conferences as general reporter and member of the organizing committees. He has received many national and international awards for his books and designed buildings.
