Nonlinear Analysis Research and Development Program for Performance-Based Seismic Engineering by NEHRP Consultants Joint Venture

The NEHRP Consultants Joint Venture is a partnership between the Applied Technology Council (ATC) and the Consortium of Universities for Research in Earthquake Engineering (CUREE). In 2007, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) awarded the NEHRP Consultants Joint Venture a National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) “Earthquake Structural and Engineering Research” task order contract (SB1341-07-CQ-0019) to conduct a variety of tasks. In 2011, NIST initiated Task Order 11174 entitled, “Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation for Performance-Based Seismic Engineering.” The objective of this project was to develop a comprehensive, long-range research and development program to establish best-practice guidelines for practitioners to conduct nonlinear analysis, structural modeling, and computer simulation for seismic applications, and to support the ongoing the development and implementation of performance-based seismic engineering.
