DOE has sponsored several conferences called "Workshops on the Design and Evaluation Guidelines for DOE Facilities Subjected to Natural Phenomena Hazards". The notes from these workshops are a good source for background material. Dawn Matz at LLNL may be able to help you at matz1(--nospam--at)llnl.gov. One good paper is by R.C. Murray and S.A.Short titled "Consistent Natural Phenomena Design and Evaluation Guidelines for USDOE Facilities" from a Dec, 1988 EPRI Symposium on Current Issues Related to Nuclear Power Plant Structures. Also, you may check the references in ASCE7-95 page 136, particularly the ones by Bruce Ellingwood. He was very instrumental in the development of the load factors and resistance factors. DOE 1020 didn't appear to have any related references.

DOE in their standard 1020 specifies a similar approach, but one that is graded based on the importance or hazard associated with the structure. Can you suggest reference material that will help clarify these relationships and in particular the structural or material side of the performance goal equation. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Dennis Niehoff
