Training Objective:

FEMA P-58 series of reports, initially published in 2012, and updated in 2018, presents a methodology, guidance on implementation, and electronic tools for seismic performance assessment and performance-based design of buildings. The recently completed ATC-58-2 Project has expanded the series of products to provide new tools and guidance on performance-based design using the FEMA P-58 methodology, and new information for communication with stakeholders.  It also utilized the methodology in evaluating the performance of code-conforming buildings using FEMA P-58 performance metrics. 

This training seminar will provide an overview of the newly available FEMA P-58 tools and guidance for design, examples on simplified and detailed implementation of the methodology, and information on the expected performance of code-conforming buildings.

Training Materials: Presentation slides will be provided as handouts. The complete set of updated FEMA P-58 products are available for download at: http://femap58.atcouncil.org/
