Purpose. This training will present new tools and guidance for performance-based seismic design, developed under the second phase of the FEMA P-58 project.  This methodology was first published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2012, along with an implementation tool for seismic performance assessment of buildings.  The follow-on project, conducted by the Applied Technology Council with funding from FEMA, developed guidance on performance of code-conforming buildings and seismic design of new buildings, as well as improvements to existing tools, incorporating environmental considerations related to seismic performance of buildings. This training seminar will provide an overview of the newly available tools and guidance.
