Projects : Task Order 01


Quantification of Building System Performance and Response Parameters

The primary objective of this project is to beta test the methodology developed in the ATC-63 project that establishes a consistent and rational procedure for developing building system performance and response parameters (R, Cd, Ω0) for the linear design methods traditionally used in current building codes. Beta testing will be conducted on three structural systems: (a) special reinforced concrete shear walls; (b) special reinforced masonry shear walls; and (c) special steel concentrically braced frames.
