Mitigating the severe damages of structures from strong earthquakes is still a critical solution even with modern and advanced engineering. Still, the brittleness behavior of high-strength concrete becomes popular in design and construction due to its advantages. Hence, construction with the utilization of high-strength concrete on the active seismic zone became a critical issue that needed to be solved.
Introduction of A Confined High Strength Column Under Lateral Cyclic Load presents a technique named Steel Strapping Tensioning Technique (SSTT) which successfully enhances the seismic properties of high strength concrete columns. This technique can improve the brittleness of high-strength concrete to a ductile manner that is preferred in seismic design. Nonetheless, the established models and the general behavior of the SSTT confined high strength concrete column are being discussed in this book.
This book is appropriate as a reference book for researchers, practicing engineers, and concrete repair specialists related to the field.
