Uncertainties are inherent in engineering problems due to various numerical modeling " imperfections'' and due to the inevitable scattering of the design parameters from their nominal values. Under this perspective, there are two main optimal design formulations that account for the probabilistic response of structural systems: Reliability-based Design(More)
1. Abstract In this paper a robust and efficient methodology is presented for treating large-scale reliability-based, structural optimization problems under seismic loads using the pushover analysis method. The optimization problem is solved with the Evolution Strategies method, while the reliability analysis is carried out with the Monte Carlo simulation(More)
Presented herein is a methodology for the seismic and hydraulic assessment of the reliability of urban water distribution networks (UWDN) based on general seismic assessment standards, as per the American Lifelines Alliance (ALA) guidelines, localized historical records of critical risk-of-failure metrics pertaining to the specific UWDN under assessment,(More)
We study how the inelastic structural response predicted via synthetic seis-mograms is affected by the selection of site response models in ground motion simulations. We first generate synthetics for multiple scenarios and site conditions in Southern California using attenuation relations, site specific linear, vis-coelastic and nonlinear analyses, and(More)
