  • What is PEER?
    plus researchers at various State and Federal government agencies contribute to research programs focused on performance based earthquake engineering in disciplines including structural and geotechnical engineering geology seismology lifelines transportation risk management and public policy The PEER mission is to develop validate and disseminate performance based seismic design technologies for buildings and infrastructure to meet the diverse economic and safety needs of owners and society PEER s research defines appropriate performance targets and develops engineering tools and criteria that can be used by practicing professionals to achieve those targets such as safety cost and post earthquake functionality In addition to conducting research to develop performance based earthquake engineering technology PEER actively disseminates its findings to earthquake professionals who are involved in the practice of earthquake engineering through various mechanisms including workshops conferences and the PEER Report Series PEER also conducts Education and Outreach programs to reach students policy makers and others interested in earthquake issues PEER was established as a consortium of nine West Coast Universities in 1996 and gained status as a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center in 1997 PEER graduated from NSF Funding in 2008 and is now supported by federal state local and regional agencies together

  • Research Program Overview
    structural and nonstructural systems consequences in terms of casualties capital costs and post earthquake functionality and decision making to respond to earthquake effects or to change the design parameters to effect improved performance To accomplish its research program PEER involves researchers from the earth sciences engineering and social sciences communities who work together to develop an integrated approach to the performance based earthquake engineering problem The PEER research program aims to provide data models and software tools to support a formalized performance based earthquake engineering methodology Within the broad field of earthquake engineering PEER s research currently is focused on four thrusts these being Building Systems Bridge and Transportation Systems Lifelines Systems and Information Technologies in support of the methodology implementation The for thrusts have the following components Thrust Area I Building Systems The new Building Thrust Area combines researchers from four of the five previous thrust areas Loss Modeling and Decision Making Geotechnical Performance Assessment and Design Methodology and Structural and Nonstructural Performance This is similar to the structure of the testbeds which also combined researchers across thrust areas The advances made in each thrust area and in the testbeds shaped the decision to create the Building Thrust Area Thrust Area II Bridges and Transportation Systems The Bridges and Transportation Systems research program is directed toward further developing the performance based earthquake engineering PBEE methodology developed by PEER and demonstrating its utility through application to difficult bridge design problems that integrate structural and geotechnical considerations Thrust Area III Lifelines Component System Hazards The Lifelines Components and Systems research program is directed toward increasing the reliability and safety of geographically distributed lifelines systems including transportation and utility lifelines The performance of a lifeline system is governed by three considerations the regional distribution of earthquake ground motion and ground failure the

  • OpenSees
    the performance of structural and geotechnical systems Breaking the barriers of traditional methods and software development protocols PEER has embarked on a completely new approach in the earthquake engineering community by developing an open source object oriented software framework OpenSees is a collection of modules to facilitate the implementation of models and simulation procedures for structural and geotechnical earthquake engineering By shared development using well designed software interfaces the open source approach has effected collaboration among a substantial community of developers and users within and outside of PEER Unique among software for earthquake engineering OpenSees allows integration of models of structures and soils to investigate challenging problems in soil structure foundation interaction In addition to improved models for reinforced concrete structures shallow and deep foundations and liquefiable soils OpenSees is designed to take advantage of the latest developments in databases reliability methods scientific visualization and high end computing PEER has provided substantial support to the community by sponsoring three workshops on OpenSees attended by more than 100 researchers and engineers Over 300 developers and users share insights and are kept apprised of the latest developments through on line collaboration tools The OpenSees website http opensees berkeley edu provides the source
