The book deals with the seismic design of steel structures based on EN 1998-1 (2004). It contains the essentials of theoretical background of seismic engineering, design requirements and detailing rules for building applications.

Calculation examples are included in the relevant chapters in order to provide a better understanding to the Reader. In addition, the book provides insights about the design assisted by testing as well as some design examples of real buildings: Tower Centre International, in Bucharest, awarded in 2007 with the ECCS Steel Design Award, a low-rise industrial building in Romania and the seismic design of the Fire Station in Naples, awarded in 1986 with the ECCS Steel Design Award.
