Post-Earthquake Fire Analysis in Urban Structures : Risk Management Strategies Hardback
Post-earthquake fire is one of the most complicated problems resulting from earthquakes and presents a serious risk to urban structures.
Most standards and codes ignore the possibility of post-earthquake fire; thus it is not factored in when determining the ability of buildings to withstand load.
This book describes the effects of post-earthquake fire on partially damaged buildings located in seismic urban regions.
The book quantifies the level of associated post-earthquake fire effects, and discusses methods for mitigating the risk at both the macro scale and micro scale.
The macro scale strategies address urban regions while the micro scale strategies address building structures, covering both existing buildings and those that are yet to be designed.
