Abstract:

The author presents a methodology for evaluating the seismic vulnerability of a bases facilities. The methodology starts with the determination of the mission important facilities to a base, the foundation of which is the importance of the missions they house. The results of which are used to determine the facilities that should be studied for their seismic vulnerability under contracts administered by Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Engineering Field Divisions. The methodology presents alternatives for evaluating the results of the engineering and seismic studies, culminating in a rank ordering of the seismic upgrading projects developed by these studies.
