About the Journal

Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics provides a forum for the publication of papers on all aspects of engineering related to earthquakes. The Editorial policy is to maintain a reasonable balance between papers from researchers and from design engineers so that the Journal will be useful to both groups. The problems in this field, and their solutions, are international in character and require knowledge of several traditional disciplines; the Journal will reflect this.

The main subject of the Journal is earthquake engineering in all its varied aspects, including seismology, tsunamis, ground motion characteristics, soil and foundation dynamics, wave propagation, probabilistic and deterministic methods of dynamic analysis, experimental behaviour of structures, and methods for earthquake resistant design and retrofit of structures that are germane to practicing engineers. It includes seismic code requirements and system identification, as well as supplemental energy dissipation, base isolation, and structural control emphasizing earthquake engineering. Papers on structural dynamics, which are concerned with other forms of dynamic loading but have relevance to earthquake engineering, will be welcome.

In 1972, when the field of earthquake engineering was still young the IAEE began its flagship periodical, Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. The founding editor was Professor Ray Clough of the University of California at Berkeley, who has been succeeded by Professor Anil Chopra, also of U.C. Berkeley. The journal continues to provide an international forum for schorly papers in the subject area of its title. The Wiley Online Library is the publisher of the journal.

Newest Tutorial from EERI and IAEE World Housing Encyclopedia:
Improving the Seismic Performance of Stone Masonry Buildings

Authored by Jitendra Bothara of New Zealand and Svetlana Brzev of Canada, the tutorial focuses on traditional stone masonry dwellings primarily in the earthquake-prone countries of Asia, explains the underlying causes for their poor seismic performance and offers techniques for improving both new and existing buildings. A pdf version of the tutorial is available at the World Housing Encyclopedia website: http://www.world-housing.net/tutorials/stone-tutorials

The production of the tutorial was a collaborative effort among EERI, the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering and the Earthquake Engineering Center of the University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar, Pakistan.

The Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery of the United Nations Development Programme has printed copies of the tutorial for distribution through their program in Asia. The publication will be shared with UNDP country offices, national governments' disaster management ministries and offices, and used in training programs. EERI and the National Information Centre of Earthquake Engineering (NICEE) at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur have copies available for the cost of shipping and handling. EERI shipping rates are: $10 to the U.S., $15 to Canada and Mexico, and $20 to other countries. Please contact NICEE (nicee.org) to order the publication from them.

The World Housing Encyclopedia is a joint project of EERI and IAEE. More information is available at the project website: www.world-housing.net.




Regulations, Codes, & Guidelines

The IAEE publishes a regularly updated compilation of the earthquake codes and regulations of its members. It also offers its Basic Concepts of Seismic Codes series that provides commentary on the basic objectives and features of seismic codes. The Guidelines for Earthquake Resistant Non-Engineered Construction book was written to provide guidance for the construction of small buildings.
