INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTATIONAL EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING
University of Tokyo, Japan
Computational mechanics have made a strong impact on classical continuum mechanics, which include engineering mechanics and structure mechanics. Earthquake engineering has achieved significant progress with the aid of computational mechanics. This book intends to cover some new aspects of earthquake engineering that are based on computational mechanics,
i.e. computational earthquake engineering. The book consists of four parts. The first part covers preliminaries and provides the basics of continuum mechanics, the finite element method and stochastic modeling. Only the key points of these subjects are briefly covered in this part. The first subject, however, is explained by separating physical principles and mathematical treatment to show that the basic structure of solid mechanics is as simple as a spring problem.
The formulation and algorithms of the finite element method are included in the second subject; knowledge of existing numerical computation techniques is inevitably required to improve existing numerical analysis methods and to develop new ones. The third subject, stochastic modeling, is not necessarily known in earthquake engineering as it exists today, however, it is essential for later developments in the book and so is included in the first part.........
