Morocco is likely one of the such a lot attention-grabbing lands on this planet from the viewpoint of its geological constitution and evolution. Our wisdom at the geology of the rustic has been tremendously superior over the last many years, in accordance with a number of seismic profiles and boreholes, seismological research of focal mechanisms, seismic tomography, gravimetric/geodetic modelling and, nevertheless, according to a massive nationwide software of Geological Mapping together with glossy geochemical analyses (trace parts) and trustworthy isotopic datings (39Ar-40Ar, U-Pb zircon, Sm-Nd, etc).

Sunlight radiation facts is critical for a variety of purposes. There are how one can acquiring sun radiation information at floor point: by way of size and through modelling. The booklet will facilitate the calculation of sun radiation required via engineers, designers and scientists and, hence, increases the entry to wanted sun radiation information.

Confined masonry, consisting of masonry units, mortar, reinforcing steel and concrete, and 35 Earthquake-Resistant 36 • Design of Masonry Buildings Reinforced masonry, consisting of masonry units, mortar, reinforcing steel and concrete infill. Because of specific characteristics of each constituent masonry material, especially masonry units, it is not easy to predict the mechanical characteristics of a specific masonry construction type by knowing only the characteristics of its constituent materials, mortar and masonry units.

The intensity of the earthquake cannot be used as a design parameter, unless it is correlated with physical quantities used in the design (accelerations, forces). Peak (or maximum) ground acceleration a g is often considered as an obvious 19 Earthquakes and Seismic Performance of Masonry Buildings physical parameter to determine the intensity of earthquakes. Forces acting on the building during an earthquake are induced by ground motion and depend on the intensity of the motion. Therefore, a correlation between the seismic intensity and expected values of peak ground acceleration a g that could be used in earthquake-resistant design of buildings, has been proposed already in the MSK-64 intensity scale.
