Abstract: The FEMA P-695 report presents a methodology for the rational quantification of seismic performance factors for use in seismic design. Despite the fact that the methodology is comprehensive and covers a wide range of possible applications, it only provides ground motion sets recorded from shallow crustal earthquakes. Therefore, this paper presents a new set of ground motions aimed at extending the scope of the FEMA P-695 methodology to zones prone to subduction earthquakes. To consider the effect of spectral s…
