Seismic Engineering

Our structural engineers are well versed in the use of suitable analysis and design tools ranging from simple, single-element modeling systems, to complicated and advanced nonlinear three-dimensional analysis and modeling of large structures under static and dynamic processing. Modern seismic recovery standards have advanced, and words like operational, immediate occupancy, life-safety, and collapse protection now apply to seismic output rates. They follow nationally recognized SEAOC, FEMA, ATC, and ASCE earthquake recovery standards.


  • Performance-Based Seismic Design (PBSD) of structures (new and retrofit).

  • Application of technologies like seismic (base) isolation, damping, fiber reinforced polymers, etc.

  • Evaluation of existing seismic risk.

  • Assessment of probable loss scenarios.

  • Design of seismic hazard mitigation schemes.

  • Development of seismic performance criteria.

  • Peer and plan review of earthquake resistant designs.

  • Nonlinear dynamic analysis.

  • 3D computer modeling.

  • Application of FEMA design guidelines.

  • Earthquake damage assessments and repairs.
