rapid screening procedures for seismic hazard

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

hi.

i got a question about the development of rapid screening procedures for seismic evaluations. i got the documents atc-21 (=fema 154 & 155) "rapid visual screening of buildings for potential seismic hazards", from 1988 (12 years old!). - since i have not found many recent publications dealing with the subject, i wonder if there are no research activities any more in the united states ? - does anybody know an evaluation of the atc-21-handbook based on observed earthquake damage ?, for example after the northridge earthquake ?

thanks for any hints,
