The Tall Buildings Initiative (TBI) is a major multidisciplinary program coordinated by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) in collaboration with numerous local, state and federal organizations. The goal of TBI is to address critical technical issues on seismic analysis and design of new tall buildings located in coastal California. This paper provides an overview of the TBI tasks on ground motion issues.
