History Note Appendix for Chapter 16

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)/National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) Multi-Hazard Loss Estimation Technology (HAZUS-MH MR2) and, specifically, the HAZUS Advanced Engineering Building Module (AEBM) are used by the Office with building-specific parameters, described in this appendix, to evaluate the Probability of Collapse of SPC-1 buildings.

The Probability of Collapse, P[COL], is calculated by Equation (A6-1):

(A6-1)

where:

P[COL|STR5]=collapse factor of the HAZUS AEBM, as modified herein, and
P[STR5]=probability of Complete Structural Damage, based on HAZUS AEBM methods and parameters, as modified herein.

Building-specific properties are based on the building type (structural system), or Model Building Type (MBT), building height (number of stories above seismic base), building age (pre-1933, 1933 – 1961 or post-1961 design vintage), availability of materials testing data, and Significant Structural Deficiencies.

Table A6-1 lists Significant Structural Deficiencies. Table A6-1 includes older buildings (pre-1933 buildings) and buildings that do not have available materials test data, and treats these conditions as Significant Structural Deficiencies.

SPC-1 buildings with no Significant Structural Deficiencies are evaluated using “Baseline” values of building-specific properties. SPC-1 buildings with one or more Significant Structural Deficiencies are evaluated using Sub-Baseline (SubBase), or Ultra-Sub-Baseline (USB) building-specific properties, as specified in Table A6-1.

Building-specific properties include parameters related to (1) building capacity, (2) building response, (3) Complete Structural Damage, and (4) building collapse. Appendix H Sections 6-A4 through 6-A7, define the parameters of interest related to building capacity, building response, Complete Structural Damage and building collapse, respectively, and specify appropriate values of these parameters.

Building-specific capacity properties of interest include the yield capacity control point (Dy, Ay) and the ultimate capacity control point (Du, Au), as calculated by Equations (A6-2 through A6-5, respectively):

(A6-2)

(A6-3)

(A6-4)

(A6-5)

where:

Cs = seismic design coefficient — values of Cs are given in Tables A6-2a and A6-2b, respectively,

α1 = modal weight factor, Alpha 1 — values of α1 are given in Table A6-4,

Te = elastic period, in seconds — values of Te are given in Table A6-3,

γ = yield strength factor, Gamma — values of γ are given in Table A6-5,

λ = “overstrength” factor, Lambda — values of λ are given in Table A6-5, and

μ = “ductility” factor, Mu — values of μ are given in Table A6-6.

Building-specific response parameters of interest include the elastic damping factor, βE, and the degradation factor, Kappa. Values of βE are given in Table A6-7 and values of the Kappa factor are given in Table A6-8.

Building-specific damage parameters of interest include the median spectral displacement of the Complete Structural Damage state, SdC, and the associated lognormal standard deviation (Beta) factor, βC. Values of βC are given in Table A6-11. Median spectral displacement at the Complete Structural Damage state, SdC, is calculated using Equation (A6-6):

(A6-6)

where:

ΔC = interstory drift ratio (of the story with maximum drift) at the threshold of Complete Structural Damage — values of ΔC are given in Table A6-9,

HR = height of building at the roof level, in inches — default values of HR are given in Table A6-3 as a function of the number of stories above grade,

α2 = modal height factor, Alpha 2 — values of α2 are given in Table A6-4, and

α3 = modal shape factor, Alpha 3, relating maximum-story drift and roof drift, values of α3 are given in Table A6-10.

Building-specific values of the collapse factor, P[COL|STR5], that describe the fraction of the building likely to be collapsed given that the building has reached the Complete Structural Damage state, STR5, are given in Table A6-12.

  1. Sub-Baseline (SubBase) and Ultra-Sub-Baseline (USB) properties are based on one, or more, significant structural deficiencies.
  2. The Deflection Incompatibility structural deficiency applies only to concrete systems (C1, C2 and C3).
  3. The Short Column structural deficiency applies only to concrete and masonry systems (C1, C2, C3, RM1 and RM2).
  4. Effects of deficiencies related to drift and mode shape limited to a combined factor of 5 reduction in Complete median (of HAZUS default value).
  5. Grey shading indicates USB performance is not defined/used for deficiencies related to degradation (kappa) and fragility curve (beta) factors.
  6. USB performance required for systems with multiple, SubBase deficiencies related to either the mode shape (Alpha 3) factor or the collapse rate.
  7. USB performance required for pre-1933 buildings with other over-strength-related deficiencies (else use SubBase performance for pre-1933 buildings).
