The Seismic Design Handbook
Performance based seismic engineering is the modern approach to earthquake resistant design. Rather than being based on prescriptive mostly empirical code formulations, performance based design is an attempt to predict buildings with predictable seismic performance. Therefore, performance objectives such as lifesafety, collapse prevention, or immediate occupancy are used to define the state of the building following a design earthquake. In one sense, performance based seismic design isdoi:10.1007/978-1-4615-1693-4_15 fatcat:5livtpdwcve4pot3juqkq7b7qy
