Abstract

A systematic methodology is developed with the objective of incorporating seismic risk in an optimal design decision process for a structure. A general framework for multi-criteria optimal design is presented, extended to include the uncertainties in the seismic loads that a structure may experience during its lifetime, and demonstrated with a simple example.
