Under load-bearing conditions, concrete behaves dynamically. This book presents the most frequently used experimental techniques to study the dynamic behavior of concrete. It goes on to study seismic ground motion and the resulting behaviors of both soil and concrete during earthquake conditions. The book describes experiments that can be set up to test large structures, as well as models that can be used to simulate the behavior of roads, bridges, and other concrete structures during an earthquake. This book fills a cholarly gap and is an important supplement to existing anti-seismic construction standards and designs.
