FEMA P-1050-2 2015 Edition - NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures Volume II: Part 3 Resource Papers  


This proposal provides background on performance based earthquake design and then proposes a potential new basis for Performance Goals in the Provisions. The proposed performance goals extend the risk targeted performance targets that was first introduced in the 2009 Provisions for Risk Category I and II structures to Risk Category III and IV structures, proposes probabilistic function loss targets for Risk Category IV structures, and proposes probabilistic performance targets for nonstructural components.
