Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings

Seismic Rehabilitation Methods for Existing Buildings covers various structures, effective parameters in seismic improvement, and other factors in seismic loading. The book offers guidance for a seismic reconstruction project based on the interpretation of publications FEMA 440, FEMA 172 and ATC 40. It includes real examples of completed and approved projects to stabilize the seismic improvement issues of existing buildings. Six perfectly executed examples, with complete refinement details, such as modeling, step-by-step improvement studies, and executive plans and seismic enhancement images are included. In essence, the book explains the classification of non-structural elements and how to carry out seismic reconstruction studies. Provides a fully functional way to evaluate, model and present details of a seismic rehabilitation plan for a building Presents real seismic refurbishment models and step-by-step methods for providing examples (including images, tables and charts)

A considerable number of buildings in the existing building stock of the United States present a risk of poor performance in earthquakes because there was no seismic design code available or required when they were constructed, because the seismic design code used was immature and had flaws, or because original construction quality or environmental deterioration has compromised the original design. The practice of improving the seismic performance of existing buildings—known variously as seismic rehabilitation, seismic retrofitting, or seismic strengthening—

Illustrated in full color throughout. The primary purpose of this document is to provide a selected compilation of seismic rehabilitation techniques that are practical and effective. The descriptions of techniques include detailing and constructability tips that might not be otherwise available to engineering offices or individual structural engineers who have limited experience in seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings. A secondary purpose is to provide guidance on which techniques are commonly used to mitigate specific seismic deficiencies in various model building

This publication on seismic strengthening of existing buildings is one of a series that FEMA is sponsoring to encourage local decision makers, design professionals, and other interested groups to undertake a program of mitigating the risks posed by existing hazardous buildings in the event of an earthquake. Publications in this series are being prepared under the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) and examine both the engineering/architectural aspects and societal impacts of seismic rehabilitation. FEMA's existing buildings activities are

In 1984, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) initiated a comprehensive, and closely coordinated program to develop a body of knowledge in support of building practices that would increase the ability of existing buildings to withstand the forces of earthquakes. Societal issues inherent in seismic rehabilitation processes also have received attention. At a cumulative cost of about $26million, this FEMA effort has generated two dozen publications and a number of software programs and audio-visual training materials for use by design professionals,

Seismic retrofitting is the modification of existing structures to make them more resistant to seismic activity, ground motion, or soil failure due to earthquakes. The planning of changes to existing buildings differs from new planning through an important condition; the existing construction must be taken as the basis of all planning and building actions. The need for seismic retrofitting of an existing building can arise due to several reasons like: building not designed to code, subsequent updating of code and
