Abstract:
In Earthquake Engineering, the design of engineering structures in a seismically active region involves a compromise between economic and safety constraints. These two constraints are coupled through the existing uncertainties in both the load regime and in the response of the structure to such loads. The description of the seismic loading at a site is important in that many times it will dictate the choice of engineering structure, which in turn will have an associated nondeterministic resistance to these loads. Thus the reliability (load vs. resistance) of the structural system is often guided by the load model conceived.
