Abstract

This paper describes the progress to date on the CSMIP- funded project to develop correlations of observed building performance with measured ground motion. Model development is in progress to develop motion-damage relationships in the form of damage probability matrices and fragility curves for wood frame, steel moment frame, rehabilitated unreinforced masonry, concrete frame, and concrete shear wall buildings – building types for which there are enough samples in the database to warrant statistical analysis. Two sample motion-damage relationships for wood frame dwellings that have been developed with the project data are included with example applications. As this project is in progress, all data and models discussed in this paper are preliminary and likely subject to revision at a later date.
