Abstract: Proceedings of the 17th Analysis and Computation Specialty Conference 2006, held in conjunction with Structures Congress 2006 in St. Louis, Missouri, May 18-21, 2006. The collection of 44 papers highlights recent research in the broad areas of applied structural analysis, optimal structural design, structural control, and emergent computing technology. Dr. Kircher’s presentation addressed the topic of Protecting Older Buildings with Seismic Isolation and Damping Systems. Dr. Kircher has made significant contributions to the field of earthquake engineering including the development of earthquake damage and loss estimation methods, seismic hazard criteria, and isolation and damping system design criteria used in building codes.
