After the March 11, 2011, earthquake in Japan, there is overwhelming interest in worst-case analysis, including the critical excitation method. Nowadays, seismic design of structures performed by any seismic code is based on resisting previous natural earthquakes. *Critical Excitation Methods in Earthquake Engineering, Second Edition*, develops a new framework for modeling design earthquake loads for inelastic structures. The Second Edition, includes three new chapters covering the critical excitation problem for multi-component input ground motions, and that for elastic-plastic structures in a more direct way are incorporated and discussed in more depth. Finally, the problem of earthquake resilience of super high-rise buildings is discussed from broader viewpoints.

- Solves problems of earthquake resilience of super high-rise buildings
- Three new chapters on critical excitation problem for multi-component input ground motions
- Includes numerical examples of one and two-story models

Structural Engineers, Structural Designers, Earthquake Engineers and Researchers
