Project Title: Solutions to the Issue of Short-Period Building Performance

Client: Federal Emergency Management Agency

Purpose: To advance the roadmap developed on the ATC-116 Project to: (1) identify key missing elements of current modeling practice related to short period buildings; (2) develop a methodology to improve analytical modeling of short period buildings; (3) calibrate the methodology with observed performance of short period buildings in recent earthquakes; and (4) simplify the methodology into practical solutions that can be implemented in codes and standards.
