Chapters cover a broad range of topics, including wind effects, seismic design, traditional and newer types of bracing systems, and the restoration of damaged or seismically vulnerable buildings. The information is presented in a user-friendly format that allows a fundamental understanding of the behaviour of steel, concrete, and composite building structures.
