Question
Sir, could you please advice me some good books to read for superstructure and infrastructure design and useful code if i use ETAB or other software to study earthquake effects.Thank

Answer
Dear Hom

Infrastructure has another meaning that you used in your question.You can model your substructure and superstructure if a wide difference exists between substructure and superstructure stiffness (say having a ratio of 10 or more ). Otherway you should model the sub and superstructure in a single model.

I will look up for more details to let you know.
