Performance Based Seismic Design

The objective of Performance-Based Seismic Design (PBSD) is to accurately predict, in definable terms, the performance of a building during any intensity of earthquake ground motion that may occur at the building site over the lifetime, or design life, of the building. Definable performance can be accomplished by designing the building to meet a wide range of performance objectives. A single performance objective consists of a level of performance in terms of damage, coupled with a level of...
