Title: Guidelines for Performance-Based Seismic Design of Tall Buildings

Author(s): Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER)

Publication: CRC



Appears on pages(s):

Keywords: seismic, tall buildings, high-rise, ASCE 7, IBC, international building code, seismic performance

Date: 5/1/2017

These Seismic Design Guidelines for Tall Buildings present a recommended alternative to the prescriptive procedures for seismic design of buildings contained in the ASCE 7 standard and the International Building Code (IBC). The intended audience includes structural engineers and building officials engaged in seismic design and review of tall buildings. Properly executed, these Guidelines are intended to result in buildings that are capable of reliably achieving the seismic performance objectives intended by ASCE 7, and in some aspects, and where specifically noted, somewhat superior performance to such objectives. Individual users may adapt and modify these Guidelines to serve as the basis for designs intended to achieve higher seismic performance objectives than specifically intended herein.
