Seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings.

Am. Society of Civil Engineers


411 pages




The Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers presents their nationally applicable standards for the seismic rehabilitation of buildings, together with commentary explaining the presented technical requirements. Covering both the overall structure of a building and nonstructural components, the standards are arranged such that four analysis procedures can be used: linear static procedure, linear dynamic procedure, nonlinear static procedure, and nonlinear dynamic procedure. In presenting the standards, both the International System of Units and customary units have been employed.
