Get access to over 12 million other articles. The construction of an expected value decision model for selecting seismic retrofit schemes for a historic building is demonstrated through a case study.

Net Present Costs (NPC) are used to rank the retrofit options. NPC is defined as the sum of the initial investment cost and the present expected value of the total future damage costs.

Four options are assumed to be proposed to upgrade the. Apr 28,  · A number of high-profile seismic events have occurred in recent years, with a wide variation in the resulting economic damage and loss of life.

This variation has been attributed in part to the stringency of seismic building codes implemented in different regions. Using the HAZUS Earthquake Model, a benefit–cost analysis was performed on varying levels of standard buildings codes for Haiti Cited by: 8.

Jun 16,  · History of retrofitting in Seattle. The City of Seattle has struggled with retrofitting policies and in the past, had focused on implementing rehabilitation policies for specific districts — namely Pioneer Square, according to “Planning for Seismic Rehabilitation,” a book by Eugene Zeller.

Through a review of different risk measures, a uniform and robust multi-criteria decision tool is created to: (1) provide a systematic and efficient approach for quantifying and evaluating the trade-offs between key decision components (i.e., benefit, cost, performance level, and risk) and deciding on optimal design /retrofit alternatives.

Its successor documents, FEMAPrestandard and Commentary for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings (FEMA, b), and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard ASCE/SEISeismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings (ASCE, ) define current practice for performance-based seismic design in the United States.

Feasibility of pre-earthquake strengthening of buildings based on cost-benefit and life-cycle cost analysis, with the aid of fragility curves Article in Natural Hazards 45(1) · January Present values of the total costs including retrofitting cost and future seismic financial damages for all retrofitting schemes are calculated.

Then a benefit-cost analysis based on the constructed decision model is undertaken to determine the optimal seismic retrofitting level for the bridge. A broad range of potential benefits of improved seismic monitoring is described in Chapters These can be summarized in three categories—benefits that flow from information that is available immediately following a single earthquake or swarm of earthquakes (e.g., levels of ground shaking, potential for coastal inundation by a tsunami, or warnings about an imminent volcanic eruption.

Hazardous Materials: Older facilities may contain lead, mold, and asbestos materials, all of which have been found to be dangerous to children. These hazardous materials can be abated, or encapsulated, so that children may safely inhabit a renovated school.

Work conducted with hazardous materials should be conducted by licensed professionals only. A simple low-cost friction base-isolation system is examined for its applicability in reducing seismic vulnerability of rural buildings. Four friction isolation interfaces, namely, marble–marble, marble–high-density polyethylene, marble–rubber sheet, and marble–geosynthetic, were studied.

In it mandated seismic upgrading on change of use or major renovation. In municipalities began to mandate seismic upgrades of `hazardous' unreinforced masonry buildings and by the majority of these buildings had been addressed.

New Zealand is now looking at expanding its program to other types of hazardous buildings. resources, benefit cost considerations are needed in seismic codes for existing structures. The relevant criteria of the risk-based seismic assessment will be presented in detail.

Based on case studies of retrofitted buildings in Switzerland, the influence of these criteria on the costs of seismic retrofitting in practical applications is lindsayvanbramer.com: Thomas Wenk.

Current estimates suggest that there are $ trillion worth of structures in the United States (FEMA, ) 3 —the value of structures in high and very high seismic risk states is about $ trillion (33 percent of the nation’s total), and in all states prone to seismic damage the value is about $ trillion (Seismic Rehabilitation of Federal Buildings: A Benefit/Cost Model, Volume 1-A User’s Manual; FEMA Sept.National Eartquake Hazards Reduction Program: RCE1, RCE2, RCE3: Extra copies of RC RC Global Topics Report on the Prestandard and Commentary for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings, FEMANov
