monograph cover images

Monographs synthesize MCEER's technical achievements for a wider range of readers than the technical report series. Monographs are a direct result of MCEER's research program over the past thirteen years. Each book provides an in-depth view of the topic addressed, by summarizing the essence and significance of the problems investigated, the methods used, and the various solutions/issues proposed. Topics include passive energy dissipation systems for structural design and retrof it, engineering and socioeconomic impacts of earthquakes, and the response of buried pipelines to earthquakes.
