MODERATOR: Ayse Hortacsu, Applied Technology Council
DESCRIPTION: Over the last 5 years, Applied Technology Council (ATC) has been conducting projects clarifying the use, as well as evaluating the accuracy, of guidance provided in ASCE 41, Standard for Seismic Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Buildings. This session will have specific focus on ASCE 41s current (and impending 2017) version and provide helpful guidance to attendees. The FEMA-funded ATC-124 project is developing an Example Application Guide that provides step-by-step illustrated examples for procedures outlined in ASCE 41-13 for common aspects of structural engineering projects, including selection of analysis procedures and acceptance criteria, overturning, and evaluation of real buildings of different structure types. ATC also nearing completion of the ATC-114 Phase 2 and 3 projects, funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), that are developing guidance for use of nonlinear structural analysis for design of buildings, specifically reinforced concrete moment frame and steel moment frame structures. Most recently, ATC initiated a new NIST-funded project that is calibrating the nonlinear analysis guidance provided in ASCE 41 by comparing the results to damage documented in buildings due to earthquake or laboratory test shaking. It is expected that the findings of this calibration study will inform the guidance provided in future versions of ASCE 41.

ROOM: San Fernando
MODERATOR: David Bonowitz, DBSE
DESCRIPTION: Earthquake resilience continues to grow as an area of research, practice, and public policy. Progress is slowed, however, by inconsistent terminology, metrics, and criteria. A 2016 NIST Special Publication, Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure, can help. The CRPG provides a pragmatic, jargon-free framework for describing and measuring community resilience. In brief, community resilience is measured by the post-event recovery time of key city-wide services or functions housing, schools, jobs, commerce, government services, etc. The CRPG recognizes resilience as an attribute of human organizations, like whole communities, not as an attribute of tangible buildings and infrastructure. To the degree that a communitys resilience is related to the performance of its physical parts, it is related more to post-earthquake reoccupancy and recovery than to immediate safety. With this understanding, a communitys current resilience can be charted as expected recovery times. Goals can be shown on the same timelines, and the gaps can drive research and policy. Most important, the CRPG presents resilience with clarity even as it adapts to communities that vary in size, age, and vulnerability. The result is a clearer, more effective link between research, practice, and community-specific policy. This session will include presentations of recent research and applications tied together by their use of CRPG principles and definitions. The presented work need not have been sponsored by NIST or motivated by the CRPG. On the contrary, the session invites abstracts on diverse topics; the CRPG will merely be used as a common set of terms for presentation and communication. With this common basis, the session will allow participants from different fields to offer insights, compare notes, and take lessons without getting lost in terminology. Presenters and attendees will build on the common CRPG foundation and on each others work.

DESCRIPTION: The Applied Technology Council (ATC) is nearing completion of a project funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that is developing recommended hysteretic relationships for use in nonlinear seismic analysis in support of performance-based seismic design and evaluation projects. Nonlinear static and dynamic analysis are commonly used by engineers to assess the probable performance of existing buildings and to design major new buildings. The currently available guidance documented in ASCE 41, Standard for Seismic Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Buildings, includes recommended backbone shapes and control points that describe the envelope of hysteretic response of various structural elements when subjected to ramped, fully-reversed, cyclic loading protocols. However, substantial additional research has been conducted since the development of the information presented in ASCE 41, enabling the development of updated backbones and control points for steel braced frame and moment frame, reinforced concrete shear wall and moment frame, and masonry and wood shear wall structures. The ATC-114 project conducted a study of available laboratory data and analytical studies benchmarked on these data to develop a recommended general protocol that includes global acceptance criteria and element action-level acceptance criteria, that are used with the data compiled to develop element-specific acceptance values. This session will start with an overview and introduction of the project and then delve into details about the individual structural systems studied.

DESCRIPTION: Established as a Council of the National Institute of Building Sciences in 1979, the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) deals with the complex technical, regulatory, social and economic issues involved in developing and promulgating building earthquake risk mitigation provisions that are national in scope. The NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures is a consensus-approved document that involves numerous efforts from experts in earthquake research, seismic hazard mapping, seismic engineering design, and construction materials. The NEHRP Provisions is the resource document that scrutinizes the broadest extent of the seismic design process and provides state-of-knowledge information to improve the current seismic design procedures in the national seismic design standards and model building codes. BSSC developed and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published the first NEHRP Provisions in 1985, and released later editions in 1988, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2009, and, 2015. The work for 2020 NEHRP Provisions, under the sponsorship of FEMA, started in 2015. Through its Project 17 Committee (P17C), the 2020 cycle includes a joint effort of FEMA/BSSC and USGS to update the basis for development of next-generation seismic design value maps, looking at many fundamental issues such as acceptable risk, stabilizing map values, and redefining seismic design category, which in turn will greatly affect the associated seismic design requirements. Through its Provision Update Committee (PUC), the 2020 Provisions investigate a breath of topics related to seismic performance objectives, seismic force resisting systems, modal response spectrum, shear wall design, nonstructural components, nonbuilding structures, soil-structure interaction, and rigid-wall flexible diaphragms. This special session will present the latest update on developing national seismic design value maps and present a preview on important code change proposals that may have wide ranging implications regarding future seismic design requirements for buildings.

ROOM: San Fernando
MODERATOR: David Bonowitz, DBSE
DESCRIPTION: Myrick v. Mastagni established that the owner of a building can be liable for losses related to its earthquake performance. In particular, considering the full life of a building, the court held that an owners liability does not begin simply when the owner falls out of compliance with applicable codes and regulations. That was enough to resolve the Myrick case, but it left two crucial questions unanswered: 1. When does the owners liability begin? As soon as construction is done? When the design becomes obsolete as codes change? When buildings just like it perform poorly in earthquakes far away? When its put on a list as potentially hazardous? 2. When does the owners liability end? When it gets evaluated as safe by a standard lower than the code for new construction? When its retrofitted to comply with a program with limited goals? This session will invite legal experts to answer these two questions in a debate-like format. The questions are especially important as seismic evaluation and retrofit programs proliferate around California. Los Angeles, for example, has mandated retrofit of about 13,000 soft story buildings but requires only minimal work that some engineers would even call inadequate to its purpose. Los Angeles has also mandated evaluation of about 1500 older concrete buildings, but retrofit is not required for another two decades. What is the owners liability in the mean time?

MODERATOR: Eduardo Miranda,Gilberto Mosqueda Stanford UniversityUC San Diego
DESCRIPTION: Nonstructural components typically represent 70 to 85% of the initial investment in buildings. Furthermore, their damage is typically triggered at levels of structural response much smaller than those required to initiate structural damage. Therefore, economic losses are typically dominated by losses associated with the damage to nonstructural components. Moreover, even in cases where there is minimal or no structural damage, the damage to nonstructural components often leads to the partial or total use of buildings. With the advent of Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering the importance of nonstructural elements is now not only widely recognized but the interest in the seismic performance is growing not only in the academic community but also in the design and manufacturer communities. This session is organized by the SPONSE Association which is an international, nonprofit, technical society of engineers, architects, manufacturers, insurers, builders, planners, public officials, and social scientists, interested in the Seismic Performance Of Non-Structural Elements.

Lunch Event - Tuesday

DATE/TIME: Tuesday 26-Jun-18: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm
ROOM: California
MODERATOR: ,
DESCRIPTION: Lunch will be served at noon, followed by the Distinguished Lecture given by Rice University professor, Dr. Reginald DesRoches, 2018 EERI Distinguished Lecturer. The topic of the lecture is as follows: Damage from recent earthquakes underscores the importance of developing new approaches and technologies to improve the performance of structures during earthquakes. The presentation will highlight applications of one class of smart materials - shape memory alloys - in improving the performance of structures subjected to earthquake loading. Shape memory alloys belong to a class of smart materials that can undergo large deformations while reverting back to their original, undeformed shape. This unique property has led to the development of numerous applications in the biomedical, aerospace, and commercial industries. A multi-scale and multi-disciplinary approach is taken to explore the potential use of these materials for applications in earthquake engineering. Component testing, full-scale testing, and detailed analyses show great potential for shape memory alloys to significantly improve the earthquake performance of nonductile buildings and bridges.

Plenary Session - Wednesday

DATE/TIME: Wednesday 27-Jun-18: 8:00 am-8:50 am
ROOM: California
MODERATOR: Christine Goulet, SCEC USC
DESCRIPTION: Traditionally, global GMPEs have been developed for three broad tectonic categories: active crustal regions, stable continental regions, and subduction zones. As empirical data sets have grown in the last decade, it has become clear that there are significant differences in the distance scaling and site scaling within these broad tectonic categories. The NGA-W2 GMPEs incorporated systematic regional differences in the in VS30 scaling, basin depth scaling, and large distance scaling for large regions (California, Japan, Taiwan, Italy, Turkey, ... ). The key differences between the 2008 NGA GMPEs and the 2014 NGA-W2 GMPEs are due to these regional differences. The effects of regionalizing the GMPEs were clearly seen in the site factors: the 2014 NGA-W2 GMPEs for California showed much stronger scaling with VS30 than the 2008 NGA GMPEs based on the global average. This change reflects the different geologies in these regions that have different correlations between the shallow shear-wave velocity (VS30) and the deep VS profile that controls site amplification. The NGA-W2 GMPEs considered the differences for broad regions, but there are systematic differences in the ground-motion scaling over a much small scale. Within California, the regional differences can be observed over distances of 15 to 30 km for the distance scaling and over even shorter distances for the site scaling, indicating that there can be significant changes in the hazard over short distances. The current efforts to include site-specific basin effects into the national hazard maps is one of the first steps in this move to site-specific GMPEs to capture regional differences over short distance within a broad tectonic region. As new GMPEs regionalized over shorter distance scales are applied, there can be significant changes in the estimated hazard at specific sites: some sites will have increased hazard and some sites will have reduced hazard. Example hazard calculations using non-ergodic GMPEs that include finely regionalized distance and site scaling effects will be shown. These examples show that there can be up to a factor of 2 increase or decrease in the ground motion for return periods of 1,000 to 10,000 years. Initially, hazard analyses based on non-ergodic GMPEs will be limited to site-specific studies, but non-ergodic terms, such as site-specific basin factors, are currently being considered for the national hazard maps. Regionalized path effects are the next step in this move to non-ergodic hazard. Dr. Abrahamson is an internationally known expert in seismic hazard and risk analyses with 30 years experience in the practical application of engineering seismology to the development of deterministic and probabilistic seismic criteria for engineering design and evaluations of seismic risk. He has been involved in developing or reviewing design ground motions for hundreds of projects around the world including dams, bridges, nuclear power plants, nuclear waste repositories, water and gas pipelines, rail lines, ports, landfills, hospitals, electric substations, and office buildings. The focus of his research has been the interface between the earth sciences and earthquake engineering. His work on ground-motion models includes the statistical methods for empirical ground-motion models such as the random-effects regression methodology and incorporation of hanging-wall effects, directivity effects, fling effects, and basin effects into empirical ground-motion models using constraints from numerical simulations. His work on seismic hazard has focused on the epistemic uncertainty in the hazard and how to reduce the uncertainty using constraints from fragile geologic features and using recordings of ground motions at the site of interest. Currently, he is working on partially and fully non-ergodic ground-motion models that transition from using global ground-motion models to using site-specific and source-specific ground-motion models.

MODERATOR: Mohamed Moustafa, University of Nevada Reno
DESCRIPTION: There is a growing interest among the bridge community in adopting performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE). Accurate modeling and rigorous nonlinear time history analysis (NLTHA) are central to fragility curves development, and in turn, indispensable for PBEE. Most of the current bridge codes such as AASHTO or Caltrans Seismic Design Criteria use classical force-based design or adopt displacement-based seismic design. NLTHA is usually limited to special cases for analysis of important bridges. However, with the recent advances in software and analysis methods, NLTHA is expected to extend to wider classes and more common bridge types to complement and/or replace current code methods, and ultimately contribute to a full PBEE framework. This is also reflected by the numerous recent or ongoing research studies that focus on providing robust modeling and analysis guidelines to capture nonlinear behavior of different bridge components and overall system behavior. This proposed session will have presentations of research focusing on advances in modeling and analysis towards performance-based design of bridges and bridge components. Some examples of the topics suitable for this session are: (1) modeling of damping and implications of damping assumptions including the damping model type (e.g. Rayleigh damping or modal damping), damping ratio, number of modes, and stiffness type; (2) soil-structure interaction at bridge abutments and pile foundations; (3) efficient computational methods (e.g. proper integration methods) for optimizing analysis time and achieving convergence for NLTHA; (4) ground motion selection and different methods for selecting or developing suite of earthquake records for NLTHA.

DESCRIPTION: SPONSORED BY IMAGECAT. Earthquake reconnaissance has evolved from collecting key observational data augmented with film photographs to a highly digital process. Mass data collection in-field not only provides an opportunity for subject-matter experts to make key observations on building and lifeline failures, but reconnaissance teams are recently discovering that it allows for detailed digital reconstruction of a wide variety of systems as well. Examples include ground-based lidar to capture landslides, UAV video providing 3D reconstruction of building damage, satellite imagery to track reconstruction and provide regional context, crowd-sourcing social and economic impacts before deployment, and hand-held devices allowing for the collection of field data on buildings, lifelines, and human subjects. These reconnaissance technologies are increasingly informing resilience modeling efforts beyond the structural environment- allowing researchers to understand why and how communities recover. This session will present several examples of new methods to monitor resilience.

DESCRIPTION: The seismic response of buildings is sensitive to damping. The level of damping in the structure affects not only the peak amplitude but also the duration of response. As recommended in ASCE 7, a damping ratio of 5% is typically used for all buildings when doing seismic loading. When doing response history analyses, a Rayleigh damping is typically used. The best way to learn about the damping in buildings is by recording the response of buildings when they are subjected to dynamic loads and then inferring the damping by using the recorded response. While there has been a relatively large number of studies on damping in buildings subjected to wind loading, the number of studies on damping of buildings subjected to seismic loading is significantly smaller. Typically, only a reduced number of buildings has been studied and their results have been added to databases that mix results from different types of dynamic load, and results inferred using different techniques. The purpose of this special session is to present and discuss results from recent investigations on damping ratios inferred from instrumented buildings subjected to earthquake ground motions. Several recent studies have been conducted on system identification of damping on hundreds of buildings in California many of which have been subjected to various earthquakes offering a unique opportunity to study the variation of damping ratios with variables such as height, primary structural material, lateral resisting system, etc. Another important aspect is the level of damping associated with higher modes. Until recently there were very few studies on the damping ratios of higher modes which offer the opportunity to evaluate the validity of Rayleigh damping which is perhaps the most common method to model damping in structures. The session will also discuss the role of soil-structure interaction on the damping in buildings.

DESCRIPTION: Column base connections are arguably the most important connections transferring forces from the entire structure into the foundation. Since the publication of the American Institute of Steel Constructions Steel Design Guide One on Base Plates (in 2006), significant research has accumulated on the topic of column base connections (especially in the context of their seismic response and design). This research, when integrated, has the potential to entirely transform the design and simulation practice for column base connections themselves, as well as the systems that they are a part of. However, the translation of this research into professional practice requires serious coordination on the part of researchers and industry leaders that are invested in these connections. The purpose of this special session is to generate this coordination, focused around the following themes: (1) reviewing recent findings on column bases including bending and shear transfer mechanisms, strength and stiffness models, best-practices for simulation, and impact on building performance, (2) examining opportunities to transfer these research and technologies to practice, given the economic tradeoffs of structural performance, construction, design and manufacturing, and (3) strategies to facilitate these technology transfers, e.g., development of design documents, codes, or examples. The participants will include a mix of academics, structural designers, fabricators, and manufacturers representing the entire cross-section of stakeholders in the context of these connections. This will (possibly for the first time) provide a common venue for discussion dedicated solely to these important connections. It is expected that significant, actionable outcomes will arise from this session.

DESCRIPTION: The goal of this special session is to collect research and application studies that focus on practical methods for near real-time monitoring and damage detection, localization, quantification, and prognosis in civil structures. Our emphasis is to summon scholarly works that aim at bridging the gap between structural damage identification theory, and real-world application that can improve seismic resilience and recovery. The breadth of proposed topics promotes looking at the subject of post-earthquake emergency response management and decision making through combining practical methods for structural system identification, remaining life estimation, performance assessment, and risk evaluation with state-of-the-art technologies for sensing, monitoring, and data network considering real-world implementation complexities. This special session include new methods for assimilating, processing, and packaging actionable information and associated uncertainty metrics, which are intended for emergency responders and decision makers in pre-disaster mitigation and post-disaster response and recovery efforts of civil structures. The special session covers approaches for rapid seismic damage identification enabled by recent developments in seismic sensing and network technology for monitoring, condition assessment, and post-disaster evaluation of civil structures. New methods in inverse modeling, estimation, uncertainty quantification, system identification, and sensing for monitoring and condition assessment of structural systems, and stochastic methods for damage prognosis and propagating the uncertainties in the performance of civil structure to post-earthquake events are also included. Risk- and reliability-informed methods to guide evacuation, emergency response, inspection, retrofit, and rehabilitation, and methods for assessment of pre-event aging and deterioration, and post-event remaining useful life, reliability, and risk of operation of civil structures are covered. Research studies that present real-world implementation, and/or experimental investigations and validation of theories or analytical approaches are especially welcome.

MODERATOR: Arrietta Chakos, Urban Resilience Strategies
DESCRIPTION: Developing successful strategies to reduce risk and increase community resilience is a global challenge. Engineering remedies for earthquake and other risks are of little use without on-the-ground implementation. Community leaders, elected officials and responsible decision makers need understandable and useable measures to enact resilience policies and programs. Current thinking about evolving and future risk calls for adaptive action that integrates solutions for reducing multiple hazards while improving resilience capacity. The papers presented in this session examine resilience-building strategies at varying levels of governance and development. These range from the practical lessons learned from the application of disaster scenarios as fundamental tools for resilient community planning to discussion of a national effort on risk reduction and its evolution. The use of improved building code standards, disaster scenario modeling and analysis of the social, economic and sustainability of disaster policies are key components of a resilience primer for communities. These policy levers are made real through recommendations of a comprehensive approach to link residential affordability with resilience implementation. The resilience policy landscape is shifting to incorporate disaster and climate impacts. As communities grapple with these complex planning challenges, promising implementation practices point to a resilient future that is in our grasp.

Lunch Event - Wednesday

DATE/TIME: Wednesday 27-Jun-18: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm
ROOM: California
MODERATOR: ,
DESCRIPTION: Lunch will be served at noon, followed by the Joyner Lecture, given by University of Texas at Austin professor, Dr. Ellen M. Rathje (M.EERI,1996), the 2018 recipient of the William B. Joyner Lecture Award. The topic of her talk will be as follows: Earthquake-induced landslides represent a significant seismic hazard, as evidenced by recent earthquakes in Kaikoura, New Zealand and Gorkha, Nepal, and proper planning/mitigation requires accurate evaluation of the potential for seismic landslides. Engineers often tackle this problem through a detailed evaluation of individual slopes and more recently have introduced performance-based engineering (PBE) concepts into the analysis. Recognizing the compounding effects of multiple landslides across an area, earth scientists often evaluate seismic landslides at a regional scale. This approach sacrifices details, but provides a broader assessment of the impacts of earthquake induced landslides. This presentation will describe the integration of performance-based engineering concepts into regional-scale seismic landslide assessments. The basic PBE framework for seismic landslides will be introduced along with the modifications required to apply it at a regional scale. The application of the approach for a seismic landslide hazard map will be presented. The use of seismic landslide inventories to validate regional landslide assessments will be discussed, along with advancements in developing seismic landslide inventories using remote sensing techniques. Finally, research needs required to further advance regional seismic landslide assessments will be presented.

DESCRIPTION: Maryanns collaboration with the late Professor Steve Mahin is the foundation for this talk, which was originally intended to be jointly presented with Steve. It will instead be presented in his honor. Maryann Phipps is a Structural Engineer with over 35 years of experience evaluating, designing and renovating buildings. She has served as Structural Engineer of Record for hundreds of renovation projects designed to enable buildings to remain operational following large earthquakes. Maryanns hands-on experience designing seismic protection for nonstructural components has helped make her a recognized expert in the field. She was the lead technical consultant for FEMA P-74 Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage, which received an Award of Excellence from the Structural Engineers Association of California. Maryann was co-leader of FEMAs reconnaissance team for the South Napa Earthquake and co-authored FEMA P-1024 Performance of Buildings and Nonstructural Components in the 2014 South Napa Earthquake. Maryann is currently technical lead for a NIST-sponsored project Seismic Analysis and Design of Nonstructural Components and Systems intended to advance the state of practice in this field. Maryann is a current member of the California Hospital Building Safety Board, California State University Seismic Review Board, and UCSF Seismic Review Committee. She is also a Past President and Fellow of the Structural Engineers Association of California, and served as Director of the Applied Technology Council.

ROOM: San Pedro
MODERATOR: Janise Rodgers, GeoHazards International
DESCRIPTION: The safest actions to take during an earthquake may depend on your environment. A panel of professionals involved in developing or implementing guidance on protective actions to take during shaking will discuss current and proposed approaches. One of these is a context-based approach, which considers an individual's surroundings. Panelists will discuss the factors that need to be considered when developing protective actions guidance. Short presentations will be followed by a panel discussion on what to do during an earthquake in different settings.

DESCRIPTION: The severity of a magnitude 9 earthquake on the PNW is largely unknown, because no ground-motion recordings are available for such megathrust earthquakes in the region. To compensate for the paucity of recordings, the UW research team collaborated with the United States Geological Survey to develop suites of simulated ground-motions for possible magnitude 9 rupture scenarios. These suites of motions were generated using physics-based ground-motion simulations that use a 3-dimensional seismic wave velocity model which represents the geological structure of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, including several deep sedimentary basins in the region (e.g., Puget Lowland basins, Tualatin basin). Researchers are probabilistically evaluating the ensuing consequences of a megathrust event on buildings and infrastructure, the potential for liquefaction and landslides, and the impact of a tsunami on coastal communities and major lifelines. The project team is also studying the use of earthquake early warning systems and methods of effective community planning to mitigate the harm caused from future earthquakes. This first of two sessions covers advances made by the M9 Project researchers in predicting the ground motions for the Magnitude 9 Cascadia event, characterizing those ground motions, and exploring the response of structural systems to such motions, including the effects of deep basin amplification and duration. Additional presentations on the response of structures to subduction interface ground motions are contributed by colleagues at the University of British Columbia.

DESCRIPTION: In 2018 and 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) plans to submit for publication updates to its National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM). As part of prior updates in 1996, 2002, 2008, and 2014, the USGS funded the Applied Technology Council to convene workshops focused on needs of users of the NSHM, who include earthquake scientists, engineers, and policymakers. Rather than holding just one user-needs workshop with each update, the USGS intends to more frequently seize opportunities to engage users via special sessions at conferences. This 11NCEE mini-workshop on needs of users will focus on our 2018 USGS NSHM update, but with the opportunity to also discuss future user needs. Our main goal is to more effectively engage our users and to better understand the range of their applications. Users with whom the USGS is currently less engaged, in particular, are invited to explain their needs from the USGS NSHM. Attendees of the mini-workshop will also be asked to offer additional user needs that could be discussed in future workshops.

DESCRIPTION: The development of a consistent set of performance standards for the built environment requires a systematic procedure, a pathway, that starts with establishing a community-level resilience objective and ends with having recovery-based performance targets for buildings and lifelines systems. This is an inherently complex and interdisciplinary problem that will require input from technical experts, stakeholders and members of the public. A possible framework that can serve as a template for formulating this procedure is the analytical-deliberative process, which provides guidelines for performing a systematic analysis of a specific risk problem, while responding to the needs of interested and affected parties and treating the relevant uncertainties in a comprehensive way. The analytical-deliberative process enables the integration of expert opinion, simulation modeling and stakeholder preferences. This special session is organized around the theme of formulating an analytical deliberative process for establishing resilience-based seismic performance standards for buildings and lifeline systems. The topics that will be addressed include (a) an overview of the current efforts and challenges towards developing resilience-based performance standards, (b) how those standards can be informed by simulation models that capture the response and recovery of sociotechnical systems impacted by extreme events and (c) an overview of the analytical deliberative process including how it can be used to develop recovery-based performance targets for the built infrastructure systems that support community functionality.

This special session is organized around the theme of formulating an analytical deliberative process for establishing resilience-based seismic performance standards for buildings and lifeline systems. The session will begin with a presentation by Chris Poland, who will discuss the specific objectives and current developments within the RRMC project. Scott Miles will then provide an overview of the analytical deliberative process and demonstrate how it can be used to develop recovery-based performance targets for the built infrastructure systems that support community functionality. Finally, presentations by Henry Burton and Rachel Davidson will focus on how post-earthquake recovery modeling can be used as a tool in the analytical deliberative process. Burton will show how performance-based earthquake engineering and urban simulation can be integrated to link individual building performance to community-scale recovery trajectories. Davidson will then describe the application of a discrete-event-simulation model of post-earthquake restoration for water and power systems.

DESCRIPTION: The Earthquake Engineering Research Institutes School Earthquake Safety Initiative (SESI) is a global and collaborative network of diverse, expert, and passionate professionals who are committed to creating and sharing knowledge and tools that enable progressive, informed decision making around school earthquake safety. Its goal is to leverage the extensive expertise and reputation of its members to conduct regionally appropriate actions that make a tangible and positive difference in communities around the world, by protecting the lives of all who inhabit school buildings. The newly published FEMA P-1000; Safer, Stronger, Smarter: A Guide to Improving School Natural Hazard Safety similarly helps schools to develop comprehensive safety strategies for earthquakes and other natural hazards. This session will discuss the efforts of both SESI and FEMA P-1000 as vehicles for engaging school safety advocates in the complex task of educating risk holders, mitigating unsafe school buildings, and appealing to whole communities for the importance of our schools before, during, and after hazard events. School earthquake and hazard safety involves many stakeholders Children, Parents, Teachers, School Administrators, School Boards, State Legislatures, and Federal Agencies. School safety advocates face the unique challenges of understanding and quantifying the risks of unsafe schools, conveying a compelling message to mitigate that risk and engaging both state and community resources and political will to take action in a timely manner. This session will present national case studies of programs and legislation used to educate, inventory, and appeal to these various stakeholders and identify some of the lessons learned along the way. Attendees will gain knowledge of the innovative ways that SESI and FEMA P-1000 are creating a hands-on approach for school safety advocacy by distilling inventory and assessment efforts into useable action tools, promoting state involvement in risk ownership and engaging the public in embracing the critical function of schools in our communities.

DESCRIPTION: A National Science Foundation-funded interdisciplinary research project (The M9 Project) at the University of Washington is studying the impacts of a large-magnitude, megathrust earthquake on the Pacific Northwest (PNW). This project aims to evaluate and reduce the catastrophic consequences of Cascadia megathrust earthquakes on the social, built, and natural environments through research advances in methodologies, warnings, design, and community planning. The severity of a magnitude 9 earthquake on the PNW is largely unknown, because no ground-motion recordings are available for such megathrust earthquakes in the region. To compensate for the paucity of recordings, the UW research team collaborated with the United States Geological Survey to develop suites of simulated ground-motions for possible magnitude 9 rupture scenarios. These suites of motions were generated using physics-based ground-motion simulations that use a 3-dimensional seismic wave velocity model which represents the geological structure of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, including several deep sedimentary basins in the region (e.g., Puget Lowland basins, Tualatin basin). Researchers are probabilistically evaluating the ensuing consequences of a megathrust event on buildings and infrastructure, the potential for liquefaction and landslides, and the impact of a tsunami on coastal communities and major lifelines. The project team is also studying the use of earthquake early warning systems and methods of effective community planning to mitigate the harm caused from future earthquakes. This second of two sessions covers advances made by the M9 Project researchers in understanding liquefaction in long-duration ground motions, landslide triggering in large magnitude subduction earthquakes, tsunami inundation modeling, structural behavior in tsunamis, effective use of earthquake early warning systems and community planning that includes uncertainty and builds on community values.

DESCRIPTION: SPONSORED BY IMAGECAT. A number of major water supply projects have recently been undertaken to achieve water supply network resilience in the face of major earthquakes, including projects for the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland/East Bay, and Portland OR. This session combines papers on each project with a panel discussion to explore innovations that were achieved in these projects, and issues requiring further research. Innovations include a new algorithm for efficient network reliability improvement, improved assessment of buried pipe performance given large permanent ground displacements (PGD), a first time assessment of hydrant vulnerability based on FEM analysis, and a detailed model for water supply resource requirements and restoration following major disasters. While each project had unique challenges, there were a number of issues common to all, which however were each approached and resolved somewhat differently. These included defining reliability and resilience goals and hydraulic demands, assessing ground motions and PGD, assessing buried pipe performance, analyzing large network hydraulics and reliability, and determining affordable solutions. The session includes a panel that integrates discussion of these issues across all the projects.

DESCRIPTION: The Applied Technology Council (ATC) recently completed a series of projects evaluating performance of buildings designed to current codes and standards. The projects investigated performance of commercial and residential buildings across a broad range of criteria including: collapse probability, repair costs, repair time, casualties, unsafe placarding, damage and collapse of wood light-frame residential buildings, and safety and functionality of nonstructural components. Results from these studies provide information on which to base evolving performance objectives and design criteria presented in future codes and standards. This session will present state-of-the art performance information as measured or re-envisioned in four FEMA- and NIST-funded projects conducted by ATC, and will solicit comments and feedback from the audience in a mini-workshop setting.

DESCRIPTION: The Earthquake Engineering Research Institutes School Earthquake Safety Initiative (SESI) is a global and collaborative network of diverse, expert, and passionate professionals who are committed to creating and sharing knowledge and tools that enable progressive, informed decision making about school earthquake safety. The Classroom Education and Outreach SESI subcommittee uses education in the classroom to create an ongoing dialogue with parents, students, teachers, and administrators to develop advocates for earthquake school safety. It works to bring together EERI regional and student chapters to collaborate on delivering activities and serving as an expert resource for stakeholders. This session will use hands-on demonstrations of 4th grade and high school curriculum developed by the Classroom Education and Outreach subcommittee to show attendees how they can utilize SESI curriculum and resources to advocate for improved school earthquake safety in their own communities. This session will include an interactive demonstration of hands-on classroom equipment used to teach school children and their teachers about earthquake engineering and earthquake safety. They will get to use KNEX materials to design their own seismically sound structures and test their efficacy using shake tables in a hands-on learning environment. Attendees will also participate in a discussion on best practices and successful approaches to classroom visits. Participants will leave the session with new advocacy ideas, the tools and knowledge to promote earthquake safety in their local schools, and a new network of school earthquake safety advocates through which they can continue to improve and elevate the practices that they learn in the session.

DESCRIPTION: The earthquake scenario, HayWired, refers to the rupture of the Hayward Fault and to the potential disruption to our wired and wireless world. More generally, wired represents interconnectedness at many levels in the seismicity evidenced by afterslip and aftershocks, interdependencies of lifelines, social connectivity through technology and within communities, and ripple effects of damages and disruption throughout and encompassing the modern digital economy. HayWired starts with a largely physics-based 3D-model of the earthquake for shaking damage assessments. Scenario innovations include estimation of shaking damages for the aftershock sequence; earthquake-related ground failures and resulting damages; fire following earthquake damages; entrapment of people; and benefits of water distribution system improvements, performance-based building codes, and earthquake early warning. HayWired delves deeper into social and economic impacts by considering population displacement; socioeconomic and community constraints; relationships between workplaces and homes; and the role of technology in response and recovery. The HayWired coalition builds on the Bay Areas foundation of earthquake preparedness embracing the goals to (1) help build community capacity to respond to and recover from earthquakes, (2) advance basic knowledge of earthquake risks; (3) inform actions to reduce earthquake risks; and (4) improve the communication and use of earthquake-hazard science in decision-making.

Special Session - Friday

DATE/TIME: Friday 29-Jun-18: 10:30 am-12:00 pm
ROOM: Beaudry A
MODERATOR: Evan Reis, US Resiliency Council
DESCRIPTION: A special session is proposed to examine comprehensive strategies of holistic community resilience emerging in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland. The disaster resilience cycle consists of Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery. Communities considering the entire cycle will be better prepared for natural disasters and offer a more sustainable model. Mitigation has traditionally focused on large cities enacting retrofit ordinances for high risk buildings such as URMs. Recently, soft-story wood and non-ductile concrete ordinances have been promulgated by these and smaller communities. We will learn about the successful effort in Santa Monica to enact a retrofit ordinance for buildings vulnerable to collapse in earthquakes, and what interested communities can learn from this experience. Mitigation is also about avoiding risk through building design to performance standards that will not only protect occupants, but reduce damage and recovery time. A resilient community must allow residents not only to survive the initial shock but restore livelihoods quickly. Once generally limited to buildings on a case-by-case basis, we will learn about the collaborative efforts of Southern California stakeholders to educate on current code performance expectations and the potential to improve performance requirements for new buildings, making cities more robust and failure resistant after a major seismic event. Preparedness, response and recovery are essential elements of cities overall disaster resilience. Training personnel, coordinating emergency response among city agencies and stakeholders, and collaboration between public and private sectors during the critical post-disaster days and weeks will affect the pace of recovery as much as the performance of the infrastructure itself. We will showcase how the USGS is developing its ShakeCast tool that can be used to provide citywide damage and social impact assessments in advance of and immediately following a major earthquake. Overlaying all aspects of the disaster resilience cycle is communication between communities and stakeholders. To support enhanced codes and greater resilience investment, stakeholders must understand the risks faced by cities in natural disasters; be able to make rational, fact-based, decisions about costs and benefits associated with resilience investment; and perceive the personal, social and economic value of these investments. We will learn about how the efforts of the US Resiliency Council to communicate these issues in Southern California and around the west coast are changing the way stakeholders think and value the work of engineers to build more resilient communities.

MODERATOR: Dimitrios Lignos,Eduardo Miranda Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL)Stanford University
DESCRIPTION: Performance-based earthquake engineering necessitates the use of structural models, methods of analysis and seismic loads, yet they all possess an inherent degree of uncertainty. Whether it is aleatory or epistemic, they both ultimately influence structural demand and capacity estimates, as well as performance estimates such as the probability of collapse or demolition or of estimates of earthquake-induced economic losses. Of interest to this session are studies dealing with any facet of this complex process including its modeling, analysis, quantification and propagation of uncertainty from the level of laboratory testing and seismic loads to the final structural design or performance assessment. We also welcome opinion papers on the future and the challenges of performance-based earthquake engineering targeting their eventual adoption in practice.

DESCRIPTION: Since 2009, there has been a rapid increase in the number of earthquakes in regions such as Oklahoma. The causes for these events have been attributed to induced seismicity, most commonly a product of disposal well injection from hydraulic fracturing. The objective of this session is to span aspects of seismology, ground motion models, societal issues for regions of the country where hazards have been elevated, observed damage due to induced seismicity, and rapid assessment approaches. At the end of the session, we plan to have an interactive panel discussion where each of the speakers will discuss future research needs in this area, while also entertaining questions from the audience addressed to the panel.

DESCRIPTION: Over the last 5 years, Applied Technology Council (ATC) has been conducting projects clarifying the use, as well as evaluating the accuracy, of guidance provided in ASCE 41, Standard for Seismic Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Buildings. This session will have specific focus on ASCE 41s current (and impending 2017) version and provide helpful guidance to attendees. The FEMA-funded ATC-124 project is developing an Example Application Guide that provides step-by-step illustrated examples for procedures outlined in ASCE 41-13 for common aspects of structural engineering projects, including selection of analysis procedures and acceptance criteria, overturning, and evaluation of real buildings of different structure types. ATC also nearing completion of the ATC-114 Phase 2 and 3 projects, funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), that are developing guidance for use of nonlinear structural analysis for design of buildings, specifically reinforced concrete moment frame and steel moment frame structures. Most recently, ATC initiated a new NIST-funded project that is calibrating the nonlinear analysis guidance provided in ASCE 41 by comparing the results to damage documented in buildings due to earthquake or laboratory test shaking. It is expected that the findings of this calibration study will inform the guidance provided in future versions of ASCE 41.

ROOM: San Fernando
MODERATOR: David Bonowitz, DBSE
DESCRIPTION: Earthquake resilience continues to grow as an area of research, practice, and public policy. Progress is slowed, however, by inconsistent terminology, metrics, and criteria. A 2016 NIST Special Publication, Community Resilience Planning Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure, can help. The CRPG provides a pragmatic, jargon-free framework for describing and measuring community resilience. In brief, community resilience is measured by the post-event recovery time of key city-wide services or functions housing, schools, jobs, commerce, government services, etc. The CRPG recognizes resilience as an attribute of human organizations, like whole communities, not as an attribute of tangible buildings and infrastructure. To the degree that a communitys resilience is related to the performance of its physical parts, it is related more to post-earthquake reoccupancy and recovery than to immediate safety. With this understanding, a communitys current resilience can be charted as expected recovery times. Goals can be shown on the same timelines, and the gaps can drive research and policy. Most important, the CRPG presents resilience with clarity even as it adapts to communities that vary in size, age, and vulnerability. The result is a clearer, more effective link between research, practice, and community-specific policy. This session will include presentations of recent research and applications tied together by their use of CRPG principles and definitions. The presented work need not have been sponsored by NIST or motivated by the CRPG. On the contrary, the session invites abstracts on diverse topics; the CRPG will merely be used as a common set of terms for presentation and communication. With this common basis, the session will allow participants from different fields to offer insights, compare notes, and take lessons without getting lost in terminology. Presenters and attendees will build on the common CRPG foundation and on each others work.

DESCRIPTION: Lunch will be served at noon, followed by the Distinguished Lecture given by Rice University professor, Dr. Reginald DesRoches, 2018 EERI Distinguished Lecturer. The topic of the lecture is as follows: Damage from recent earthquakes underscores the importance of developing new approaches and technologies to improve the performance of structures during earthquakes. The presentation will highlight applications of one class of smart materials - shape memory alloys - in improving the performance of structures subjected to earthquake loading. Shape memory alloys belong to a class of smart materials that can undergo large deformations while reverting back to their original, undeformed shape. This unique property has led to the development of numerous applications in the biomedical, aerospace, and commercial industries. A multi-scale and multi-disciplinary approach is taken to explore the potential use of these materials for applications in earthquake engineering. Component testing, full-scale testing, and detailed analyses show great potential for shape memory alloys to significantly improve the earthquake performance of nonductile buildings and bridges.

DESCRIPTION: The Applied Technology Council (ATC) is nearing completion of a project funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that is developing recommended hysteretic relationships for use in nonlinear seismic analysis in support of performance-based seismic design and evaluation projects. Nonlinear static and dynamic analysis are commonly used by engineers to assess the probable performance of existing buildings and to design major new buildings. The currently available guidance documented in ASCE 41, Standard for Seismic Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Buildings, includes recommended backbone shapes and control points that describe the envelope of hysteretic response of various structural elements when subjected to ramped, fully-reversed, cyclic loading protocols. However, substantial additional research has been conducted since the development of the information presented in ASCE 41, enabling the development of updated backbones and control points for steel braced frame and moment frame, reinforced concrete shear wall and moment frame, and masonry and wood shear wall structures. The ATC-114 project conducted a study of available laboratory data and analytical studies benchmarked on these data to develop a recommended general protocol that includes global acceptance criteria and element action-level acceptance criteria, that are used with the data compiled to develop element-specific acceptance values. This session will start with an overview and introduction of the project and then delve into details about the individual structural systems studied.

MODERATOR: William Graf, ImageCat Inc.
DESCRIPTION: SPONSORED BY IMAGECAT. Geographically distributed groups of buildings (portfolios) present special challenges for seismic risk assessment -- for engineers, for owners and lenders, for insurers and for public agencies. Current catastrophe software is oriented toward earthquake insurance (RMS, CoreLogic, AIR Worldwide) or toward public agencies (HAZUS) for individual scenarios (e.g., ShakeOut). This session will examine portfolios seismic risk issues from a wide range of perspectives, with invited papers and a panel at the end to engage with the audience. Current work by ASTM subcommittee WK55885 on Seismic Risk Assessment of Real Estate Portfolios will be summarized, and input from the broader community sought.

DESCRIPTION: Established as a Council of the National Institute of Building Sciences in 1979, the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) deals with the complex technical, regulatory, social and economic issues involved in developing and promulgating building earthquake risk mitigation provisions that are national in scope. The NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures is a consensus-approved document that involves numerous efforts from experts in earthquake research, seismic hazard mapping, seismic engineering design, and construction materials. The NEHRP Provisions is the resource document that scrutinizes the broadest extent of the seismic design process and provides state-of-knowledge information to improve the current seismic design procedures in the national seismic design standards and model building codes. BSSC developed and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published the first NEHRP Provisions in 1985, and released later editions in 1988, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2009, and, 2015. The work for 2020 NEHRP Provisions, under the sponsorship of FEMA, started in 2015. Through its Project 17 Committee (P17C), the 2020 cycle includes a joint effort of FEMA/BSSC and USGS to update the basis for development of next-generation seismic design value maps, looking at many fundamental issues such as acceptable risk, stabilizing map values, and redefining seismic design category, which in turn will greatly affect the associated seismic design requirements. Through its Provision Update Committee (PUC), the 2020 Provisions investigate a breath of topics related to seismic performance objectives, seismic force resisting systems, modal response spectrum, shear wall design, nonstructural components, nonbuilding structures, soil-structure interaction, and rigid-wall flexible diaphragms. This special session will present the latest update on developing national seismic design value maps and present a preview on important code change proposals that may have wide ranging implications regarding future seismic design requirements for buildings.

DESCRIPTION: Myrick v. Mastagni established that the owner of a building can be liable for losses related to its earthquake performance. In particular, considering the full life of a building, the court held that an owners liability does not begin simply when the owner falls out of compliance with applicable codes and regulations. That was enough to resolve the Myrick case, but it left two crucial questions unanswered: 1. When does the owners liability begin? As soon as construction is done? When the design becomes obsolete as codes change? When buildings just like it perform poorly in earthquakes far away? When its put on a list as potentially hazardous? 2. When does the owners liability end? When it gets evaluated as safe by a standard lower than the code for new construction? When its retrofitted to comply with a program with limited goals? This session will invite legal experts to answer these two questions in a debate-like format. The questions are especially important as seismic evaluation and retrofit programs proliferate around California. Los Angeles, for example, has mandated retrofit of about 13,000 soft story buildings but requires only minimal work that some engineers would even call inadequate to its purpose. Los Angeles has also mandated evaluation of about 1500 older concrete buildings, but retrofit is not required for another two decades. What is the owners liability in the mean time?

DESCRIPTION: Nonstructural components typically represent 70 to 85% of the initial investment in buildings. Furthermore, their damage is typically triggered at levels of structural response much smaller than those required to initiate structural damage. Therefore, economic losses are typically dominated by losses associated with the damage to nonstructural components. Moreover, even in cases where there is minimal or no structural damage, the damage to nonstructural components often leads to the partial or total use of buildings. With the advent of Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering the importance of nonstructural elements is now not only widely recognized but the interest in the seismic performance is growing not only in the academic community but also in the design and manufacturer communities. This session is organized by the SPONSE Association which is an international, nonprofit, technical society of engineers, architects, manufacturers, insurers, builders, planners, public officials, and social scientists, interested in the Seismic Performance Of Non-Structural Elements.

DESCRIPTION: Traditionally, global GMPEs have been developed for three broad tectonic categories: active crustal regions, stable continental regions, and subduction zones. As empirical data sets have grown in the last decade, it has become clear that there are significant differences in the distance scaling and site scaling within these broad tectonic categories. The NGA-W2 GMPEs incorporated systematic regional differences in the in VS30 scaling, basin depth scaling, and large distance scaling for large regions (California, Japan, Taiwan, Italy, Turkey, ... ). The key differences between the 2008 NGA GMPEs and the 2014 NGA-W2 GMPEs are due to these regional differences. The effects of regionalizing the GMPEs were clearly seen in the site factors: the 2014 NGA-W2 GMPEs for California showed much stronger scaling with VS30 than the 2008 NGA GMPEs based on the global average. This change reflects the different geologies in these regions that have different correlations between the shallow shear-wave velocity (VS30) and the deep VS profile that controls site amplification. The NGA-W2 GMPEs considered the differences for broad regions, but there are systematic differences in the ground-motion scaling over a much small scale. Within California, the regional differences can be observed over distances of 15 to 30 km for the distance scaling and over even shorter distances for the site scaling, indicating that there can be significant changes in the hazard over short distances. The current efforts to include site-specific basin effects into the national hazard maps is one of the first steps in this move to site-specific GMPEs to capture regional differences over short distance within a broad tectonic region. As new GMPEs regionalized over shorter distance scales are applied, there can be significant changes in the estimated hazard at specific sites: some sites will have increased hazard and some sites will have reduced hazard. Example hazard calculations using non-ergodic GMPEs that include finely regionalized distance and site scaling effects will be shown. These examples show that there can be up to a factor of 2 increase or decrease in the ground motion for return periods of 1,000 to 10,000 years. Initially, hazard analyses based on non-ergodic GMPEs will be limited to site-specific studies, but non-ergodic terms, such as site-specific basin factors, are currently being considered for the national hazard maps. Regionalized path effects are the next step in this move to non-ergodic hazard. Dr. Abrahamson is an internationally known expert in seismic hazard and risk analyses with 30 years experience in the practical application of engineering seismology to the development of deterministic and probabilistic seismic criteria for engineering design and evaluations of seismic risk. He has been involved in developing or reviewing design ground motions for hundreds of projects around the world including dams, bridges, nuclear power plants, nuclear waste repositories, water and gas pipelines, rail lines, ports, landfills, hospitals, electric substations, and office buildings. The focus of his research has been the interface between the earth sciences and earthquake engineering. His work on ground-motion models includes the statistical methods for empirical ground-motion models such as the random-effects regression methodology and incorporation of hanging-wall effects, directivity effects, fling effects, and basin effects into empirical ground-motion models using constraints from numerical simulations. His work on seismic hazard has focused on the epistemic uncertainty in the hazard and how to reduce the uncertainty using constraints from fragile geologic features and using recordings of ground motions at the site of interest. Currently, he is working on partially and fully non-ergodic ground-motion models that transition from using global ground-motion models to using site-specific and source-specific ground-motion models.

ROOM: Beaudry B
MODERATOR: Mohamed Moustafa, University of Nevada Reno
DESCRIPTION: There is a growing interest among the bridge community in adopting performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE). Accurate modeling and rigorous nonlinear time history analysis (NLTHA) are central to fragility curves development, and in turn, indispensable for PBEE. Most of the current bridge codes such as AASHTO or Caltrans Seismic Design Criteria use classical force-based design or adopt displacement-based seismic design. NLTHA is usually limited to special cases for analysis of important bridges. However, with the recent advances in software and analysis methods, NLTHA is expected to extend to wider classes and more common bridge types to complement and/or replace current code methods, and ultimately contribute to a full PBEE framework. This is also reflected by the numerous recent or ongoing research studies that focus on providing robust modeling and analysis guidelines to capture nonlinear behavior of different bridge components and overall system behavior. This proposed session will have presentations of research focusing on advances in modeling and analysis towards performance-based design of bridges and bridge components. Some examples of the topics suitable for this session are: (1) modeling of damping and implications of damping assumptions including the damping model type (e.g. Rayleigh damping or modal damping), damping ratio, number of modes, and stiffness type; (2) soil-structure interaction at bridge abutments and pile foundations; (3) efficient computational methods (e.g. proper integration methods) for optimizing analysis time and achieving convergence for NLTHA; (4) ground motion selection and different methods for selecting or developing suite of earthquake records for NLTHA.

MODERATOR: Charles Huyck, ImageCat
DESCRIPTION: SPONSORED BY IMAGECAT. Earthquake reconnaissance has evolved from collecting key observational data augmented with film photographs to a highly digital process. Mass data collection in-field not only provides an opportunity for subject-matter experts to make key observations on building and lifeline failures, but reconnaissance teams are recently discovering that it allows for detailed digital reconstruction of a wide variety of systems as well. Examples include ground-based lidar to capture landslides, UAV video providing 3D reconstruction of building damage, satellite imagery to track reconstruction and provide regional context, crowd-sourcing social and economic impacts before deployment, and hand-held devices allowing for the collection of field data on buildings, lifelines, and human subjects. These reconnaissance technologies are increasingly informing resilience modeling efforts beyond the structural environment- allowing researchers to understand why and how communities recover. This session will present several examples of new methods to monitor resilience.

DESCRIPTION: The seismic response of buildings is sensitive to damping. The level of damping in the structure affects not only the peak amplitude but also the duration of response. As recommended in ASCE 7, a damping ratio of 5% is typically used for all buildings when doing seismic loading. When doing response history analyses, a Rayleigh damping is typically used. The best way to learn about the damping in buildings is by recording the response of buildings when they are subjected to dynamic loads and then inferring the damping by using the recorded response. While there has been a relatively large number of studies on damping in buildings subjected to wind loading, the number of studies on damping of buildings subjected to seismic loading is significantly smaller. Typically, only a reduced number of buildings has been studied and their results have been added to databases that mix results from different types of dynamic load, and results inferred using different techniques. The purpose of this special session is to present and discuss results from recent investigations on damping ratios inferred from instrumented buildings subjected to earthquake ground motions. Several recent studies have been conducted on system identification of damping on hundreds of buildings in California many of which have been subjected to various earthquakes offering a unique opportunity to study the variation of damping ratios with variables such as height, primary structural material, lateral resisting system, etc. Another important aspect is the level of damping associated with higher modes. Until recently there were very few studies on the damping ratios of higher modes which offer the opportunity to evaluate the validity of Rayleigh damping which is perhaps the most common method to model damping in structures. The session will also discuss the role of soil-structure interaction on the damping in buildings.

MODERATOR: Amit Kanvinde, University of California Davis
DESCRIPTION: Column base connections are arguably the most important connections transferring forces from the entire structure into the foundation. Since the publication of the American Institute of Steel Constructions Steel Design Guide One on Base Plates (in 2006), significant research has accumulated on the topic of column base connections (especially in the context of their seismic response and design). This research, when integrated, has the potential to entirely transform the design and simulation practice for column base connections themselves, as well as the systems that they are a part of. However, the translation of this research into professional practice requires serious coordination on the part of researchers and industry leaders that are invested in these connections. The purpose of this special session is to generate this coordination, focused around the following themes: (1) reviewing recent findings on column bases including bending and shear transfer mechanisms, strength and stiffness models, best-practices for simulation, and impact on building performance, (2) examining opportunities to transfer these research and technologies to practice, given the economic tradeoffs of structural performance, construction, design and manufacturing, and (3) strategies to facilitate these technology transfers, e.g., development of design documents, codes, or examples. The participants will include a mix of academics, structural designers, fabricators, and manufacturers representing the entire cross-section of stakeholders in the context of these connections. This will (possibly for the first time) provide a common venue for discussion dedicated solely to these important connections. It is expected that significant, actionable outcomes will arise from this session.

DESCRIPTION: Lunch will be served at noon, followed by the Joyner Lecture, given by University of Texas at Austin professor, Dr. Ellen M. Rathje (M.EERI,1996), the 2018 recipient of the William B. Joyner Lecture Award. The topic of her talk will be as follows: Earthquake-induced landslides represent a significant seismic hazard, as evidenced by recent earthquakes in Kaikoura, New Zealand and Gorkha, Nepal, and proper planning/mitigation requires accurate evaluation of the potential for seismic landslides. Engineers often tackle this problem through a detailed evaluation of individual slopes and more recently have introduced performance-based engineering (PBE) concepts into the analysis. Recognizing the compounding effects of multiple landslides across an area, earth scientists often evaluate seismic landslides at a regional scale. This approach sacrifices details, but provides a broader assessment of the impacts of earthquake induced landslides. This presentation will describe the integration of performance-based engineering concepts into regional-scale seismic landslide assessments. The basic PBE framework for seismic landslides will be introduced along with the modifications required to apply it at a regional scale. The application of the approach for a seismic landslide hazard map will be presented. The use of seismic landslide inventories to validate regional landslide assessments will be discussed, along with advancements in developing seismic landslide inventories using remote sensing techniques. Finally, research needs required to further advance regional seismic landslide assessments will be presented.
