QUIKTILT is a consultative tool that assists a structural engineer in assessing the expected seismic performance of a tilt‐up building. QUIKTILT captures the expertise of seasoned structural engineers who, through training and experience, understand the important factors affecting the seismic performance of tilt‐up buildings. The evaluation of seismic performance of existing masonry buildings is a critical issue in assessing the seismic vulnerability of the built environment. With this aim, non-linear static analysis is commonly used, but results are influenced significantly by the collapse criteria adopted, as well as by the assumptions about material properties and drift capacity of masonry walls.

This report describes the application of the FEMA P assessment methodology to a group of archetypical buildings representative of structures conforming to the seismic design requirements of the current building code. Note: FEMA documents are available online free of charge, and in hard copy by contacting FEMA (phone: ). The effects of local geology on ground-motion amplification and building damage were studied in Palestine-West Bank. Nakamura's method of microtremor analysis was applied in this study. The measurements showed significantly higher amplification in the frequency range of building vulnerability in different parts of Nablus city. This finding is consistent with the distribution of the earthquake.

The principal product under this combined year work effort was the development of a methodology for seismic performance assessment of individual buildings that properly accounts for uncertainty in our ability to accurately predict response, and communicates performance in ways that better relate to the decision-making needs of stakeholders.

Expected Seismic Performance of Buildings. Developed by an EERI ad hoc committee in order to help building owners, code administrators, and others involved in building maintenance programs understand how seismic design provisions and quality of construction affect earthquake performance.

Book Description Seismic Performance of Asymmetric Building Structures presents detailed investigations on the effective assessment of structural seismic response under excessive torsional vibrations, demonstrating behavioural aspects from local response perspective to global seismic demands.

Seismic performance assessment or seismic structural analysis is a powerful tool of earthquake engineering which utilizes detailed modelling of the structure together with methods of structural analysis to gain a better understanding of seismic performance of building and non-building technique as a formal concept is a relatively recent development.

The book offers guidance for a seismic reconstruction project based on the interpretation of publications FEMAFEMA and ATC It includes real examples of completed and approved projects to stabilize the seismic improvement issues of existing buildings.

The costs of inadequate earthquake engineering are huge, especially for reinforced concrete buildings. This book presents the principles of earthquake-resistant structural engineering, and uses the latest tools and techniques to give practical design guidance to address single or multiple seismic performance levels.

This book examines and presents essential aspects of the behavior, analysis, design and detailing of reinforced concrete buildings subjected to strong seismic activity.

Seismic design is an extremely complex problem that has seen spectacular development in the last decades. The present volume tries to show how the principles and methods of earthqua. The target audience of the book is practicing seismic structural engineers and architects, in 2 Earthquake Demand on Buildings Seismic Design Force 15 Dynamic Characteristics of Buildings 18 Natural Period 18 (a) Fundamental Natural Period of Building Phase 1 work was completed in with the publication of FEMA P, Seismic Performance Assessment of Buildings, Volume 1 – Methodology, Volume 2 – Implementation Guide, and a series of supporting electronic materials and background technical information.

G.M. Atkinson, K. Goda, in Handbook of Seismic Risk Analysis and Management of Civil Infrastructure Systems, PSRA. PSRA evaluates the seismic performance of a structure quantitatively and is one of the key building blocks in the PBEE methodology (Cornell et al., ; McGuire, ; Ruiz-Garcia and Miranda, ).The output renders the statistical distribution of an engineering.

Expected Earthquake Performance of Buildings Designed to the California Building Codewas initiated and is published by the California Alfred E. Alquist Seismic Safety Commission (“Seismic Safety Commission”). The NEES-Soft project was a five-university multi-industry effort that culminated in a series of full-scale soft-story wood-frame building tests to validate retrofit philosophies proposed by (1) the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) P guidelines and (2) a performance-based seismic retrofit (PBSR) approach developed within the project.

Presented in this paper is an updated literature review of the Performance­based Seismic design (PBSD) method. Performance based Seismic design is. Recent developments in earthquake engineering indicate that probabilistic seismic risk analysis (PSRA) is becoming increasingly useful for the evaluation of structural per-formance in accordance with building codes.

In recent years, the field of seismic resis-tance design has been undergoing a critical shift in focus from strength to performance. The state-of-art report has been elaborated over a period of 4 years by Task Group Displacement-based design and assessment of fib Commission 7 Seismic design, a truly international team of experts, representing the expertise and experience of all the important seismic regions of the world.

Key points When carrying out seismic assessments of potential earthquake-prone buildings, engineers must use the current Engineering Assessment Guidelines (the Red Book).

is the premier publication of the SEAOC Seismology Committee. The name “Blue Book” is renowned worldwide amongst engineers, researchers, and building officials. Sincethe SEAOC Blue Book has been a prescient publication of earthquake engineering.

This new edition of. Recently, the evaluation of seismic performance of existing buildings has received a great attention. Current research works and observations indicate that The Sudan have low-to-moderate seismic regions. Most of existing buildings are designed only for gravity load.

The objective of this paper is to assess the seismic performance of existing RC buildings in The Sudan.

Modern standards for constructions in seismic zones allow the construction of buildings able to dissipate the energy of the seismic input through an appropriate location of cyclic plastic deformations involving the largest possible number of structural elements, forming thus a global collapse mechanisms without failure and instability phenomena both at local and global level.Proceedings of the ATC & SEI Conference on Improving the Seismic Performance of Buildings and Other Structures, held in San Francisco, California, DecemberSponsored by Applied Technology Council and the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE.EXPECTED SEISMIC PERFORMANCE OF CODE-DESIGNED BUILDINGS Background of Building Codes and Seismic Provisions A devastating fire in London in resulted in the first comprehensive building code enforced by government.
