Special page on the SICHUAN earthquake of May 12, 2008 in China
We present the special page of the SICHUAN earthquake of May 12, 2008 in China, where the following information is available:
1) Determination of earthquake magnitudes using duration of high-frequency energy radiation and maximum displacement amplitudes by Dr. Hara
2) Aftershock Distribution and the Mainshock Fault Plane by MJHD method by Dr. Hurukawa
3) “Earthquake design spectrum in Chinese Design Code” compiled by Dr. Saito
4) China-Seismic design code and past seismic damages

We'd like to ask you, especially Chinese ex-participants, to send us information on this disastrous earthquake to share it.
 Published a book "Foundation for Industrial Machines - Handbook for Practicing Engineers" March 2008
The handbook is written primarily for practising engineers as well as for students at Post Graduate level. Handbook shares author's long experience on the subject and focuses on the improvements needed in the design process with the sole objective of making practising engineers physically understand and feel the dynamics of machine foundation system.
