Discussions are given for the optimal seismic disaster prevention investment of the existing deteriorated lifeline system. Finally, the present study can provide a performance-based design method for seismic retrofit strategies of existing lifelines which can be carried out through the target probabilities of value loss and structural failure.

First, this thesis proposes an end-to-end framework that encompasses seismic hazard characterization, network performance estimation, and network com. One area of considerable development is earthquake engineering. Here, the assessment of seismic hazards and performance of civil, mechanical and electrical systems has involved comprehensive probabilistic analyses in which full analyses of natural and knowledge uncertainties are conducted as part of seismic risk studies.

SYNER-G, a multidisciplinary effort funded by the European Union, allowed the development of an innovative methodological framework for the assessment of physical as well as socio-economic seismic vulnerability and risk at urban and regional level.

The results of SYNER-G are presented in two books. Seismic risk assessment of lifelines is considerably more complicated than that of a single structure on account of the geographical spread of lifelines.

Lifeline risk assessment requires knowledge about ground-motion intensities at multiple sites. This study considers the seismic performance analysis of lifeline network systems.

INTRODUCTION The question of appropriate seismic hazard input for lifetime seismic risk analysis has been discussed extensively over the past several years [].

It is generally agreed that for large, underground lifeline systems, the following aspects of seismic. The estimation of lifeline seismic vulnerability is obtained by calculating direct damage and economic losses, using the following procedures: (1) calculation of seismic risk by estimation of seismic movements, (2) inventory of damage data for each system, and (3) determination of vulnerability curves as a function of seismic intensity.

Part of: Lifeline Seismic Risk Analysis—Case Studies Abstract: The water supply for San Francisco is described with emphasis on the city's auxiliary water distribution network, which provides fire protection for the most heavily built-up areas.

This study aimed at developing a model to evaluate lifelines seismic vulnerability, considering physical, functional, and organizational factors as deeply interconnected one to the other.

The resulting assessment tool consists of a set of parameters measuring the response capacity of lifelines exposed to earthquakes. 21, – Lifeline Performance, TCLEE Monograph No.

Similarly there are applications and studies about lifeline reliability under seismic hazard without any spatial analysis tools. Selcuk and Yucemen,Selcuk and Yucemen,idealized a lifeline network as an equivalent network with capacity of its elements being random and spatially correlated.

The current state of the art of the seismic risk analysis for the underground lifeline systems, particularly for the water transmission network system, is reviewed.

An emphasis in the review is placed on the analysis of major causes of system damages and on the procedures of the seismic design decision analysis unique to the underground. Several specific objectives cited in the NEHRP include the charge to develop seismic design and construction standards for Federal use; develop guides for facilities that are Federally owned, constructed or financed to ensure serviceability following an earthquake and coordinate the development of guides for the consideration of seismic risk in.

Recent lifeline seismic risk studies. Conference Kiremidjian, A S. The objective of this book is to present some recent earthquake hazard and vulnerability analysis models for lifeline systems.

The approach considered is different from seismic risk analysis of conventional structures in that lifelines are spatially distributed with components. Over 40 states in the United States are subject to risk from earthquake, facing potential serious loss of life and injury to citizens, damage to the built environment and resulting economic losses in these areas.

While tremendous progress has been made over the years, much remains to be done to mitigate this risk. Improvements in design approaches and methods, improved codes and standards and.
