Assessment of Performance-Based Seismic Design Methods in ASCE 41 for New Steel Buildings

1 Presentation 0 Sections

This session will highlight results of a study investigating the correlation between the seismic performance of an ASCE 7 code-compliant steel building and its performance as quantified using ASCE 41 analysis procedures and structural performance metrics.
John Harris is a research structural engineer in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program of the Engineering Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. His research covers earthquake engineering, performance-based seismic engineering, seismic design of structural systems, structural steel structures, and development of building code seismic provisions. Dr. Harris is a member of the ASCE 7 Seismic Subcommittee and the ASCE 41 Committee.
