This CD provides eleven papers summarizing new developments in the assessment and retrofit of concrete buildings, with a particular focus on the collapse prevention performance level. Many of the papers report on efforts by task groups of ACI 369, Committee for Seismic Repair and Rehabilitation. Several papers in this CD summarize research efforts related to the ACI 369 proposals under development, including modeling parameters and acceptance criteria for existing and jacketed columns, slender walls, and slab-column connections. Other papers report on retrofit case studies, a new assessment procedure for concrete buildings in Turkey, and practical numerical models for existing beam-column joints, in filled frames, and collapse simulation.
