AbstractWhether or not a building can survive an earthquake depends primarily on its behaviour when horizontally shaken. This behaviour can be predicted and remedial measures, if necessary, invoked. To determine whether a building needs such remedial measures, building owners and professionals would first subject it to a seismic screening process. The screening process determines which buildings should be slated for a detailed evaluation. This usually includes those buildings where the potential for loss of life can be high. Once they have been screened and evaluated, buildings can be retrofitted for seismic resistance using various measures.
