Earthquake Protection - Paperback

ISBN: 0470849231

[SR: 4691436], Paperback, [EAN: 9780470849231], Wiley, Wiley, Book, [PU: Wiley], Wiley, Since the publication of the successful first edition of Earthquake Protection there have been 110 lethal earthquakes, killing 130 000 people; there have also been significant developments in the field of earthquake risk management, particularly in the modelling and analysis of risk for insurance and financial services. Furthermore, major earthquake disasters, such as the 1994 Northridge earthquake in California, the 1995 Kobe earthquake in Japan and the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake in Turkey have occurred. The experience and knowledge gained through these events have improved our understanding of how to manage, mitigate and work towards the prevention of similar catastrophes. The 1990s were in fact the costliest decade on record in terms of disaster management due to such seismic events, placing unprecedented pressure on the insurance industry in particular, and changing its view of earthquake protection. Significantly revised and updated, this second edition continues to provide a comprehensive overview of how to reduce the impact of earthquakes on people and property, and implement best practice in managing the consequences of such disasters. It also includes significant coverage of the techniques of modelling earthquake catastrophe. Each chapter deals with a separate aspect of protection, and covers a wide range of economic and social conditions, drawing on the authors' considerable personal experience and with reference to real life examples. Key features include: Recent event coverage Modern developments in the theory and practice of planning and engineering loss estimation techniques, along with new engineering techniques such as microzonation and hazard-mapping Historic buildings experience An entirely new chapter on 'Earthquakes and Finance' This valuable book provides essential reading for earthquake and structural engineers and geoscientists, as well as insurers and loss prevention specialists, risk managers and assessors involved in managing earthquake risk, urban and regional planners, and emergency management agencies., 266162, Buildings, 3564986011, Landmarks & Monuments, 882340, Religious Buildings, 1007, Residential, 173508, Architecture, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 226523, Seismic Design, 227541, Civil & Environmental, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13603, Geology, 16052951, Geomorphology, 16052841, Historical, 271631011, Limnology, 16052891, Physical, 16052941, Plate Tectonics, 16053011, Sedimentary, 16053041, Specific Locations, 16052931, Structural, 16053021, Volcanology, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13628, Seismology, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491340, Civil Engineering, 468212, Engineering, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491730, Earth Sciences, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
