In performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE), evaluating the seismic performance (or seismic risk) of a structure at a designated site has gained major attention, especially in the past decade. One of the objectives in PBEE is to quantify the seismic reliability of a structure due to future random earthquakes at a site. For that purpose, probabilistic seismic demand analysis (PSDA) is utilized as a tool to estimate the mean annual frequency of exceeding a specified value of a structural demand parameter (e.g., interstory drift ratio).
