For the engineer performing a detailed analysis on specific building and soil characteristics, ST-RISK™ provides a worksheet for the identification of items important to seismic performance. This worksheet is a modification of the FEMA 310 procedure for evaluating seismic vulnerability of buildings. An example of this worksheet is shown below. This level of analysis must be completed by a licensed engineer.
Most of the worksheet items require TRUE/FALSE choices. Some require judgmental values within specified ranges. Typical values are supplied within the worksheet to help you with the evaluation process. The ST-RISK™ help system contains a substantial amount of applicable FEMA-310 documentation. In this way, you have immediate help on any questions regarding the worksheet input.
