ICSSC Biennial Progress Report for 2018: Report on Progress Towards Implementation of Executive Order 13717: Establishing a Federal Earthquake Risk Management Standard - Reporting Period: February 2, 2016 to February 1, 2018

October 21, 2021
John Harris, Katherine Johnson, Steven McCabe
On February 2, 2016, President Obama signed Executive Order (EO) 13717: Establishing a Federal Earthquake Risk Management Standard. The EO establishes a minimum level of seismic safety compliance for new and existing buildings that will be constructed

Research Needs to Support Immediate Occupancy Building Performance Following Natural Hazard Events

August 21, 2018
Siamak Sattar, Therese P. McAllister, Katherine J. Johnson, Christopher T. Clavin, Christopher L. Segura, Steven L. McCabe, Juan F. Fung, Leslie Abrahams, Emily Sylak-Glassman , Marc L. Levitan, Kenneth W. Harrison, John L. Harris
The performance of buildings in our communities depends on multiple factors including the availability of supporting infrastructure, the original design, the current condition and capacity to resist hazard impacts, and the ability to recover functionality

ASCE/SEI 41 Predicted Performance of Newly Designed BRBFs

January 8, 2017
Matthew Speicher, John Harris
Structural engineers in the United States have turned to performance-based design methodologies for design of new buildings in order to find improved design solutions as compared to those obtained using prescriptive design provisions of current model

Kevin K. Wong, John L. Harris
Seismic fragility represents the probability that the structural response exceeds a given performance limit state due to a specified intensity of ground motion, and it has a direct relationship with the cost of rehabilitating the structural system. In this

A Direct Analysis Method for Drift-Sensitive Steel Moment Frames

February 17, 2011
John L. Harris
Design interaction equations for steel members in a moment frame are formulated based on inelastic member capacities that account for geometric imperfections, residual stresses, second-order effects, and, in some cases, eccentric loading. The analytical

Kevin K. Wong, John L. Harris
Linear modal analysis and superposition technique has been used extensively in earthquake engineering and seismic applications for decades, and it is here extended to the nonlinear domain by representing the material nonlinearity using the force analogy
