<P>Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged ahead of the flip of the century because the most crucial improvement within the box of Earthquake Engineering over the last 3 many years. It has considering the fact that then began penetrating codes and criteria on seismic overview and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand new buildings to boot. the USA were a pacesetter in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, but additionally Europe is a tremendous 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 individuals world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the US, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the complete scope of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering: flooring 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 may be of curiosity to scientists and complicated practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.</P>

It is hoped that the results of this work will have an impact on current building codes that anchor the whole design spectrum to a single intensity value (typically ag ) and, thus lead to wrong estimates of the long period branch. Since short and long period hazard pictures can be vastly different, both short and long period anchors should be furnished by a building code in order to have a (hopefully) accurate description of the design ground motion both in amplitude and in shape, useful for both displacement and force design applications.

In current engineering practice, site response analyses are performed with a deterministic approach at most parametrically. However, deterministic analyses of seismic amplification do not necessarily represent the response at a site where the uncertainties of the parameters used in the subsoil model are large. Moreover, the quality and completeness of the data used to construct the subsoil model strongly affect the reliability of the results. Every input parameter is affected by an uncertainty that propagates through the model, thereby influencing the results of site response analysis.
