Techniques and parameters for earthquake risk assessment
The principal elements of seismic risk assessment are outlined. An approach to seismic risk assessment is developed that provides quite satisfactory risk assessments on a scale of a single structure to regional assessments of risk. An example of a contemporary risk assessment is discussed and the development of a data base for routine risk assessments is advocated.
