DOC: INTERIM TESTING PROTOCOLS FOR DETERMINING THE SEISMIC PERFORMANCE


One of the primary goals of the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is prevention or mitigation of this country's losses from hazards that affect the built environment. To achieve this goal, we as a nation must determine what level of performance is expected from our buildings during a sev ere event, such as an earthquake. To do this, several years ago FEMA contracted with the Applied Technology Council (ATC) to develop next-generation performance-based seismic design guidelines, which would allow stake holders and their representatives to assess the probable seismic performance of new and existing buildings, and to be able to design or improve their structures to meet their performance goals....
