By Ezio Faccioli, Manuela Villani, Manuela Vanini, Carlo Cauzzi (auth.), Michael N. Fardis (eds.)

<P>Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged prior to 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 evaluate and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand new constructions in addition. the U.S. were a pacesetter 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 participants world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the USA, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the full 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 complex practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.</P>

Example text

In earlier work [21] parametric studies were carried out on alluvium filled valleys to understand how seismic motion is amplified as a function of valley geometry, of the fault mechanism and of different valley-fault configurations, using configurations representative of valleys in Italy, for focal distances at valley centre of about 15 and 20 km. A key parameter in all analyses is the fundamental 1D vibration period of the sedimentary column at valley centre, T01D , acting as a theoretical upper bound to 2D amplification effects [10].

Once the thickness of each layer was defined, the VS properties of the 1D model have been described using the VS profiles obtained from the cross hole test.
