Chen (dean of the College of Engineering, U. of Hawaii at Manoa) and Lui (chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Syracuse U.) present five papers that together describe the basics of earthquake engineering design. The papers review the characteristics of earthquake damage to structures, explain the principles and practices of seismic design of building and bridges, and introduce performance-based seismic design and evaluation of building structures.
