NEES-Soft: Seismic Risk Reduction for Soft-Story Woodframe Buildings
The NEES-Soft Project, whose full title is "Seismic Risk Reduction for Soft-Story Woodframe Buildings" is a five-university multi-industry collaboration has the objectives of developing and demonstrating a methodology to retrofit soft-story woodframe buildings to (1) protect life safety and property by avoiding soft story collapse and excessive upper story accelerations, and (2) provide a mechanism by which soft story woodframe buildings can be retrofitted using performance-based seismic design (PBSD) to achieve a level of performance commensurate with their stakeholders target. This will be accomplished through a comprehensive combination of new numerical modeling procedures, hybrid testing for validation of two levels of soft story woodframe retrofit ...Learn More
