Design of Earthquake-Resistant Structures to Eurocode 8
Eurocode 8 (EC8) is a state-of-the-art third generation code for seismic design. It includes well established concepts such as energy dissipation and new concepts such as displacement-based method. EC8 provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date set of design rules currently available and is now the single seismic design code in Europe. It represents a significant step forward harmonising design and analysis of earthquake-resistant structures throughout Europe and potentially around the world.
