Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Seismic Engineering: Research and Practice


The ATC-22 project is the development of a Handbook for the application of the methodology of ATC-14 for the seismic evaluation of existing buildings. The development of the Handbook itself was preceded by several preliminary steps: a critique of existing methodologies that resulted in the selection of ATC-14, a field test of ATC-14, a special study sponsored by the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (NCEER) dealing with the use of ATC-14 in zones of low seismicity, and a special study which reviewed the use of ATC-14 in a program of up-grading of buildings owned by the City of San Francisco. The project was sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
