Although buildings are designed in accordance with code provisions and local construction practices of the time, earthquakes have caused significant economic losses to communities. This is because of the fact that codes have focused on ensuring life safety of the buildings but not the socioeconomic impact on communities from the damage or loss of functionality of the buildings. This study aims at developing a framework for optimizing the target safety levels of buildings based on communitylevel… CONTINUE READING
