Example Application Guide for ASCE/SEI 41-13 Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, with Additional Commentary for ASCE/SEI 41-17
United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
Applied Technology Council
From the Preface: "For over 30 years, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has had an extensive and long-term program to address the seismic safety of existing buildings. This program has led to the development of guidelines and standards for existing buildings that form the basis of current seismic evaluation and performance-based design of seismic retrofits in the United States. In 2014, the Applied Technology Council (ATC), with funding from FEMA under Task Order Contract HSFE60-12-D-0242, commenced a series of projects (ATC-124, ATC-124-1, and ATC-124-2) to develop a document that would present design examples for seismic retrofit and evaluation of buildings using the consensus standard ASCE/SEI 41-13, 'Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings,' published by the American Society of Civil Engineers. This 'Example Application Guide' and its design examples provide helpful guidance on the interpretation and use of ASCE/SEI 41-13, and the 'Guide' is intended to benefit both practicing engineers and building officials who have limited or no experience with ASCE/SEI 41, as well as those engineers and building officials who have used ASCE/SEI 41 in the past but have specific questions."
