Seismic performance of tall buildings designed following non-prescriptive design procedures

Preetish Kakoty, Alireza Eksir Monfared & C. Molina Hutt
Currently enforced building code requirements for earthquakes, including the guidelines for seismic design of tall buildings using non-prescriptive design procedures, are primarily intended to minimize life-safety risks due to structural damage under extreme earthquakes. While tall buildings designed under current standards are expected to achieve such life-safety goal, this study estimates their performance could require recovery times on the order of 3 to 9 months to repair damage from a designlevel earthquake (roughly equivalent to...
