Earthquake Design for Uncertainty

Managing uncertainty in earthquake engineering has always been a key challenge for New Zealand engineers and the theme of the recent NZSEE conference. The uncertainty of earthquake demands has recently been given increased prominence due to the anticipated release of the new National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) for New Zealand, later in 2022.

To assist engineers designing new buildings during this time of change, the collaborating technical societies of NZSEE, SESOC and NZGS have developed advice for engineers on recommended approaches an engineer can take to help ensure reliable performance from a building – regardless of the minimum design actions adopted.
