By Ezio Faccioli, Manuela Villani, Manuela Vanini, Carlo Cauzzi (auth.), Michael N. Fardis (eds.)

<P>Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged sooner than the flip of the century because the most crucial improvement within the box of Earthquake Engineering over the past 3 a long time. It has considering then all started penetrating codes and criteria on seismic evaluation and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand spanking new constructions in addition. the united states were a pacesetter in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, but in addition Europe is an important contributor. Workshops on Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, held in Bled (Slovenia) in 1997 and 2004 are regarded as milestones. The ACES Workshop in Corfu (Greece) of July 2009 builds on them, attracting as members world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the United States, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the complete scope of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering: flooring motions for performance-based earthquake engineering; Methodologies for Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; Implementation of Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; and complicated seismic checking out for performance-based earthquake engineering.

Audience: This quantity should be of curiosity to scientists and complex practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.</P>

Randomly generated geotechnical parameters varying within properly defined probability distributions were assumed to generate the seismic response of over 5,000 numerical simulations. The variability of seismic input was also taken into account by considering an appropriate set of seismo- and spectrum-compatible natural records. The seismic input to be used for each case study was defined by means of a standard Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment (PSHA).
