A framework for life-cycle cost optimization of buildings under seismic and wind hazards
MetadataShow full item record
The consequential life and economic impact resulting from the exposure of building structures to single hazards have been well quantified for seismic and wind loading. While it has been recognized that structures are likely to be subjected to multiple hazards during their service life, designing for such scenario has been achieved by as considering the predominant hazard. Although from a structural reliability perspective, this might be a reasonable approach, it does not necessarily result in the most optimal life-cycle cost for the designed structure. Although such observation has been highlighted ...
