This book discusses, in a unified approach, the theoretical and practical aspects of the seismic behaviour of all types of concrete and embankment dams. The initial chapters deal with general problems of seismologic engineering, with particular emphasis on the origin and tectonic mechanisms of natural and induced earthquakes. Subsequent chapters describe procedures for determining dynamic loadings and evaluating the seismic response of the dam. The final chapter deals with the very topical problem of seismic risk to dams.
