Protection of Educational Buildings Against Earthquakes
This manual presents both theoretical background on the topic of earthquakes and guidelines for designing new and strengthening existing buildings for earthquake resistance. Particularly relevant aspects such as low-tech construction materials and natural hazard areas are discussed in detail.
This is an updated version of the 1987 UNESCO manual of the same title.
