The impact of a PEER funded research project "Regional Scale Simulation of Uncertain Response of Transportation Infrastructure Soil-Structure Systems" is highlighted below. The project Principal Investigator (PI) is Boris Jeremić, University of California, Davis.
The main impact of developed methodology and examples will be in providing researchers, practicing engineers and regulators with methodology and tools to assess seismic risk using novel analytic approaches, without a need to decide what Intensity Measures (IMs) to use. Moreover, methodology can be easily extended to include risk assessment for soil and/or structure systems resulting from other non-seismic loading scenarios.
