Multidimensional fragility of structures
Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research, 2006 - Earthquake resistant design - 147 pages
Investigates the sensitivity of fragility curves when uncertainties in limit states are considered. Influence of structural and response parameters, such as stiffness, acceleration and displacement thresholds, input ground motions, and uncertainties due to structural modeling are investigated. A demonstration hospital in the San Fernando Valley was used to show the applicability of this technique.
