SP3-RiskModel is the most reliable solution for seismic risk assessment.
The Express Modeling Level provides rapid seismic risk assessment with very little building information. The inputs include location, building age, number of stories, structural system, and occupancy. This can be used for initial design, for approximate “Level 0” risk analysis, and can be coupled with the SP3-Batch module to run analyses for large inventories.
The Standard Modeling Level leverages all of the automation available in the SP3-RiskModel, but allows users to input the information required for a typical risk assessment of an existing building (“Level 1”) or for initial resilient design of a new building.
The Advanced Modeling Level leverages all of the automation available in the SP3-RiskModel, but allows the user to overwrite nearly all of analysis inputs, to provide a high-fidelity building-specific risk analysis.
This module is typically used for resilient design of new buildings or advanced risk assessment of existing buildings. The possible user data includes (but is not limited to) site and soil information, building properties, building responses from independent modeling, structural and non-structural component inventories, and user-defined component fragility information.
Use the comprehensive SP3-RiskModel reports to document your building-specific seismic risk analysis and to provide a wealth of seismic risk information to your client.
All licensing levels in the SP3-RiskModel include a detailed analysis report to document the analysis process and risk results. The report includes detail on repair costs, building reoccupancy and functional recovery times, as well as additional reports to further break-down expected component damage.
These PDF reports are easily generated with the SP3-RiskModel automation, and the many graphics and charts can be used to communicate building-specific seismic risk information.
