<P>Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged earlier than the flip of the century because the most crucial improvement within the box of Earthquake Engineering over the last 3 many years. It has for the reason that then begun penetrating codes and criteria on seismic evaluation and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand new constructions to boot. the USA were a pace-setter in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, but in addition Europe is an enormous contributor. Workshops on Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, held in Bled (Slovenia) in 1997 and 2004 are regarded as milestones. The ACES Workshop in Corfu (Greece) of July 2009 builds on them, attracting as members world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the US, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the full scope of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering: flooring motions for performance-based earthquake engineering; Methodologies for Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; Implementation of Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; and complicated seismic checking out for performance-based earthquake engineering.

Audience: This quantity should be of curiosity to scientists and complex practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.</P>

Example text

Deaggregation analysis of PSHA results was performed to identify the controlling earthquake for the site and a set of 7 spectrum-compatible accelerograms recorded on rocky sites were finally selected as inputs for site response analyses [6]. Throughout the years three main geotechnical investigation campaigns were carried out at the site. The first one, in 1976, consisted of borehole drilling, laboratory testing of the soil samples and survey of the foundation geometry. In 2004 a new site investigation campaign was carried out.

9 shows the comparison between the mean spectrum and the mean ± 1 standard deviation obtained from over 1,000 simulations and the UHS for the 475 years return period. 2 g. As described for the case study of Kancheepuram, a set of 7 records can be selected by imposing compatibility with the mean spectrum from the stochastic site response analysis. 10 shows the comparison for the Vicoforte site between the mean spectrum from Monte Carlo simulations and the mean spectrum of the set of selected records.

Single deterministic site response analyses are inadequate to handle this problem.
