Seismic Issues in Structural Engineering Codes and Practice

by Vilas Mujumdar, (F.ASCE), Office of State Regulation Services, Sacramento, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structures Congress XII

Abstract:

It is necessary that we view the seismic events in an overall probabilistic mode and determine the criteria for acceptable damage at various levels of service in the building. We need to define design earthquakes for these predetermined levels of service. The design needs to be performance based to be compatible with these levels.
