We believe that seismic damage can be reduced and risk can be better understood.
Through this work, we observed that advanced performance and risk assessment methods were rarely utilized in practice. While the relevant knowledge was available, there were no tools that enabled rapid assessments.
Given our performance-based engineering research and software development experience, we saw a chance to address this problem.
When equipped with the tools to comprehensively assess building performance, we believe that designers can reduce seismic damage and owners and insurers can better understand their risk and make better decisions.
