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.
