Project Title: Investigation of Project 17 Duration Effects

Funding Source: ATC Endowment Fund

Purpose: To support the FEMA-funded Project 17 effort that is examining the basis for the national seismic design value maps and the design procedures that reference them, in preparation for the 2020 Provisions update cycle.
