The ATC-58-3 report, Proceedings of FEMA-Sponsored Workshop on Performance-Based Design, was funded by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). (Published 2003, 146 pages)
ABSTRACT: This report provides the proceedings of a workshop conducted on February 24-25, 2003 in San Francisco, California under the ATC-58 project.
This report provides a summary of the proceedings of a Workshop on Performance-based Seismic Design, held in San Francisco, California on February 24-25, 2003. This workshop was held as part of the FEMA-funded ATC-58 project to develop performance-based seismic design guidelines. The purpose of the workshop was to:
- introduce the earthquake engineering community to the ATC-58 project;
- obtain information on recent significant technical developments relevant to performance-based seismic design; and
- obtain community input into the process of updating and revising the FEMA 349 Action Plan for Performance-Based Seismic Design (EERI, 2000), which, will serve as the basic road map for conduct of the ATC-58 project.
Workshop Two, the proceedings of which are presented in this document, was held on February 24-25, 2003 in San Francisco, California, to introduce the ATC-58 project to the building design, research and regulation communities, to obtain feedback on significant advances that have occurred since the development of the FEMA-349 report, and to assist in identifying appropriate updates to the FEMA-349 recommendations considering the state of current knowledge. The Workshop program included updates on recent international developments, updates on relevant research conducted by the National Science Foundation-funded earthquake engineering research centers, and breakout sessions that focused on the following program components; performance-based design of structures, performance-based design of nonstructural components and systems, and risk management and communication considerations.
