Project Title: Performance-Based Seismic Engineering: Benchmarking of Existing Building Evaluation Methodologies

Client: National Institute of Standards and Technology

Purpose: To conduct an objective comparison of the evaluation and assessment procedures contained in ASCE/SEI 41 with regard to other design and evaluation standards and to data recorded for reinforced concrete buildings. The project will consider both the current standard, ASCE/SEI 41-13, and the more recent version currently under development, ASCE/SEI 41-17. The findings of the comparison studies will be summarized in a final project report.
