Functional Recovery of Current ASCE 7 Code-Minimum Buildings, and Need for Resilience-Based Design Webinar (FR Webinar #3)
The SP3 Team is kicked off a new webinar series, March 8th, focused on Resilient Design for Functional Recovery. The goal of this webinar series is to keep you updated on the many recent developments in this resilient design arena, and to provide you with the tools, background, and training necessary to implement resilient design for functional recovery in your structural engineering practice.
Third Webinar: Expected Functional Recovery Performance of Current ASCE 7 Code-Minimum Buildings, and Specific Needs for Resilience-Based Design
Presented by D. Jared DeBock, PhD, PE, Department Chair and Hayden Homes Dennis P. Murphy Endowed Professor in Civil Engineering, CSU Chico & Curt B. Haselton, PhD, PE, Co-Founder/CEO at HB-Risk, Professor, CSU Chico
This webinar will presented study results on the expected functional recovery performance of new buildings designed by ASCE 7, as well as specific design needs for resilient design. Presenters will show how fairly long recovery times are expected for new buildings subjected to design shaking (~3-12 months, depending on building specifics). This reflects the current ASCE 7 performance objective being occupant safety (for RC II), and not necessarily for the building to be functional (or even occupiable) following a major earthquake. Presenters will then discuss what design changes would be needed for new buildings to be resilient (have faster recovery times), and will show that such changes are feasible, and are already being implemented electively in structural engineering practice.
