This course will cover how the FEMA P-58 analysis method is
now being used in practice for both resilient design of new buildings and risk
assessment of existing buildings for earthquake hazards. The FEMA P-58
method was developed by the Applied Technology Council and FEMA through a $16M
investment, and provides a building-specific approach to seismic risk
evaluation considering safety, repair costs, and building closure time.
This new building-specific method is in contrast to other older risk assessment
methods (e.g. HAZUS), which were developed for classes of buildings and were
expressly not developed for building-specific analysis. This new FEMA
P-58 method enables direct quantitative resilient design (to meet resiliency
targets related to limiting repair costs and building closure times) and
provides the next generation methodology for building-specific seismic risk
