Filiatrault Co-Authors Book on Passive Energy Dissipation and Base Isolation Systems
Constantin Christopoulos, University of Toronto, and MCEER’s Deputy Director Andre Filiatrault, are co-authors of a newly published book entitled “Principles of Passive Supplemental Damping and Seismic Isolation.” The book provides theoretical and applied knowledge on various supplemental damping and seismic isolation systems that have demonstrated potential at raising the performance of buildings and bridges under earthquake ground motions while keeping construction costs reasonable. The focus of the book is on passive energy dissipation and base isolation systems.
IUSS Press, a Publishing House recently created by the Institute of Advanced Study of Pavia, Italy, is the publisher. The book can be ordered in hard cover .
