Proceedings of the 2009 ATC & SEI Conference on Improving the Seismic Performance of Buildings and Other Structures, held in San Francisco, California, December 9-11, 2009. Sponsored by Applied Technology Council and the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE.
This collection contains 133 papers that advance an engineering professional's understanding of the tools, techniques, and innovations available to meet the challenges of seismic evaluation and rehabilitation. Those new to seismic rehabilitation will find this collection to be an excellent introduction to the core issues.
This volume focuses solely on improving the seismic performance of existing buildings and other structures. The papers present new information on the seismic evaluation and seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings, including case studies, new discoveries, innovative use of technologies and materials, implementation issues, needed improvements to existing standards and methods, and socioeconomic issues.
