    Probabilistic Performance-Based Optimum Seismic Design Framework: Illustration and Validation

    Yong Li1,*, Joel P. Conte2, Philip E. Gill3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.120, No.3, pp. 517-543, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.06269

    Abstract In the field of earthquake engineering, the advent of the performance-based design philosophy, together with the highly uncertain nature of earthquake ground excitations to structures, has brought probabilistic performance-based design to the forefront of seismic design. In order to design structures that explicitly satisfy probabilistic performance criteria, a probabilistic performance-based optimum seismic design (PPBOSD) framework is proposed in this paper by extending the state-of-the-art performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE) methodology. PBEE is traditionally used for risk evaluation of existing or newly designed structural systems, thus referred to herein as forward PBEE analysis. In contrast, its use for design purposes is limited… More >
