Next-Generation Performance-Based Seismic Design Guidelines: Program Plan for New and Existing Buildings
This publication is a step-by-step program plan for the current FEMA project with the Applied
Technology Council to develop next-generation performance-based seismic design procedures
and guidelines for structural and nonstructural components in new and existing buildings. This
plan offers a background on current code design procedures, introduces performance-based
seismic design concepts, identifies improvements needed in current seismic design practice,
and outlines the tasks and projected costs for a two-phase program to develop next-generation
performance-based seismic design procedures and guidelines.
