Acquaints users with typical problems unrelated to design & construction processes that might arise when planning or engaging in seismic rehab. projects & programs. Alerts readers to the difficulties inherent in implementing seismic rehab. recommendations. Emphasizes 2 basic user-oriented concepts. The first is a process that outlines a set of decision points so the user can determine whether seismic rehab. efforts are needed &, if so, their potential scope. The 2nd offers a simple escalation ladderÓ to help users understand the degree of conflict inherent in & the implications of choosing wh

This community handbook will increase awareness of seismic risk & includes up-to-date information on seismic design & construction practices. It is designed to provide interested individuals across the nation with information that will assist them in assessing the seismic risk to their buildings & their community & in determining what might be done to mitigate that risk -- whether on an individual basis or through community building regulatory action. Contents: when happens to structures when the ground moves? decisions, decisions! how can I make my community act? codes & standards. etc. Illus

Seismic design requirements for nonstructural building components of five major building codes, including the 1994 Uniform Bldg. Code, the 1994 Standard Bldg. Code, the 1994 NEHRP Recommended Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings, the New Zealand Bldg. Code, and the Japanese Bldg. Code, were reviewed in this study. Comparisons of codes reveal wide variation in seismic force and displacement requirements, both in terms of levels of stringency and levels of details. The difference in seismic force requirements between the most and least stringent codes can be more than five times.

Provides a process for seismic evaluation of existing buildings in any region of seismicity. Buildings are evaluated to either the Life Safety or Immediate Occupancy Performance Level. Provides instruction to the evaluating design professional on how to determine if a building is adequately designed and constructed to resist seismic forces. All aspects of building performances are considered in terms of foundation/geologic, structural, hazard, nonstructural issues. Reflects advancements in technology; incorporates design professional experience; incorporates lessons learned during recent earth
