Design of Wind- and Earthquake- Resistant Reinforced Cement Concrete Buildings explains wind and seismic design issues of RCC buildings in brief and provides design examples based on recommendations of latest IS codes essential for industrial design. Intricate issues of RCC design are discussed which are supplemented by real-life examples. Guidelines are presented for evaluating the acceptability of wind-induced motions of tall buildings. Design methodologies for structures to deform well beyond their elastic limits, which is essential under seismic excitation, have been discussed in detail. Comparative discussion including typical design examples using recent British, Euro and American codes is also included.
