The ATC-72 report, Proceedings of Workshop on Tall Building Seismic Design and Analysis Issues, was published under a contract with the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER), with Workshop funding support from Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), through the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) of the National Institute of Building Sciences. (Published 2007, 97 pages)
ABSTRACT: The purpose of the Workshop on Tall Building Seismic Design and Analysis Issues was to solicit the opinions and collective recommendations of leading practitioners, regulators, and researchers actively involved in design, permitting, and construction of tall buildings. The outcome of this workshop is a prioritized list of the most important tall building modeling and acceptance criteria issues needing resolution, based on the discussion of the multi-disciplinary stakeholders in attendance. This list will be used as the basis for future work in developing recommended guidelines for tall building design as part of the PEER Tall Buildings Initiative.
