Extreme loading conditions such as severe earthquakes, high winds, blast, impact, shock, and fires have caused significant loss of life, injuries and serious economic losses in many parts of the world. These events continue to demonstrate the vulnerability of our structures and the weaknesses in our approaches to design for life safety of users and occupants.
This volume provides a forum for researchers and practicing professionals to report on the analysis and design of structures for extreme loading conditions and point to the future directions of research in this important field.
The proceedings also include 10 invited Keynote papers from world-class researchers who are conducting leading edge research. The papers cover a wide range of topics and themes that are both interesting and challenging.
It is an essential resource for students, researchers and professionals in all areas of civil engineering and beyond relating to the analysis and design of structures.
