Designing for the Big One: Seismic Resilience

Seismologists say there is a 72 percent chance that an earthquake of magnitude 6.7 or greater will strike the Bay Area before 2043. As San Francisco experiences rapid development and population growth, preparedness for a severe seismic event is all the more critical. This Record on the Road will focus on the sophisticated analytical tools and other means that engineers, architects, and city officials are deploying to go beyond current codes to both safeguard human life and create resilient structures that could quickly be re-occupied after the inevitable Big One.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Distinguish the performance objectives of code-compliant seismic design from those of resilient seismic design.
  2. Describe tools and standards that project teams can use to understand the trade-offs and risks implicit in seismic-design decisions.
  3. Describe some typical seismic systems for both high-rise and low-rise structures.
  4. Explain how nonstructural components can contribute to or detract from seismic resilience.
