Webinar

Strategies for Enhancing the Seismic Resilience of Building Structures

Wednesday, April 1, 2020
12:00pm-1:00pm

 

Webinar:

This presentation will discuss specific ways that a structural engineer can enhance the seismic resiliency of a new building directly in the design process, and shows how this can be done right now on their current projects (i.e. no need to wait for this to be required). The presentation will cover three primary approaches - (a) strategies for structural system selection, (b) the approach of turning current code “knobs” to enhanced resilience (e.g. Ie, Ip, drift), and (c) using the FEMA P-58 analysis method directly in the design process to quantify resilience. Resiliency will be tracked through three primary metrics (time to reoccupy building, time to regain building function, and repair costs) and project examples will be provided to show how buildings are now being directly designed to meet quantitative resiliency goals (e.g. immediate reoccupancy, function within a month, < 5% loss ratio, etc.).

Speaker:

Curt B. Haselton, PhD, PE
John F. O’Connell Endowed Professor of Civil Engineering
CSU Chico
SP3 Co-Founder

Curt B. Haselton, Ph.D., P.E. is the John F. O’Connell Endowed Professor of Civil Engineering at California State University, Chico, and the Co-Founder and CEO of Haselton Baker Risk Group (hbrisk.com) and the Seismic Performance Prediction Program (SP3); SP3 is a commercial tool to implement FEMA P-58 analyses, with the goal of making broad use of resilience-based design and risk assessment feasible in structural engineering practice.  Dr. Haselton's research is in the area of performance-based and resilience-based earthquake engineering, with focuses on damage and loss estimation, building code development, collapse safety assessment, ground motion selection and scaling, and the treatment of uncertainties. Dr. Haselton also chaired the Building Seismic Safety Council team to rewrite Chapter 16 of the ASCE 7-16 building code.
