By Michael N. Fardis

Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged earlier than the flip of the century because the most vital improvement within the box of Earthquake Engineering over the past 3 a long time. It has for the reason that then began penetrating codes and criteria on seismic review and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand spanking new constructions besides. the united states were a pace-setter in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, but in addition Europe is an incredible contributor. Workshops on Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, held in Bled (Slovenia) in 1997 and 2004 are regarded as milestones. The ACES Workshop in Corfu (Greece) of July 2009 builds on them, attracting as individuals world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the USA, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the total scope of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering: floor motions for performance-based earthquake engineering; Methodologies for Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; Implementation of Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; and complex seismic trying out for performance-based earthquake engineering.

Audience: This quantity can be of curiosity to scientists and complicated practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.
