<P>Performance-based Earthquake Engineering has emerged ahead of the flip of the century because the most crucial improvement within the box of Earthquake Engineering over the past 3 a long time. It has because then all started penetrating codes and criteria on seismic overview and retrofitting and making headway in the direction of seismic layout criteria for brand new constructions besides. the U.S. were a pacesetter in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, but additionally Europe is a big contributor. Workshops on Performance-based Earthquake Engineering, held in Bled (Slovenia) in 1997 and 2004 are regarded as milestones. The ACES Workshop in Corfu (Greece) of July 2009 builds on them, attracting as individuals world-leaders in Performance-based Earthquake Engineering from North the United States, Europe and the Pacific rim (Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, China). It covers the complete scope of Performance-based Earthquake Engineering: flooring motions for performance-based earthquake engineering; Methodologies for Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; Implementation of Performance-based seismic layout and retrofitting; and complicated seismic checking out for performance-based earthquake engineering.

Audience: This quantity could be of curiosity to scientists and complex practitioners in structural earthquake engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, and experimental dynamics.</P>

Vassiliou and N. Makris This article essentially builds upon the work of Baker [2], Mavroeidis and Papageorgiou [7], Gabor [3] and Makris and Black [4] in an effort to extract in a mathematically rigorous way the most representative time scales and length scales in earthquake acceleration records. In this work we first examine with continuous wavelet transform 183 acceleration records using five (5) elementary mother wavelets and we conclude that not only the period (dilation-contraction of the wavelet) but also the phase and number of cycles (oscillatory character) need to be manipulated in order to achieve the best local matching of the prevailing acceleration pulse.

In some events the pulse is also distinguishable in the acceleration history and in this case the ground motions are particularly destructive to most civil structures. In other cases acceleration records contain high frequency spikes and resemble random motions; however, their velocity and displacement histories uncover a coherent long-duration pulse that results from the nonzero mean of the acceleration fluctuations. These motions have a much smaller destructive potential to most civil structures (Ts < 4 s) even when they produce ground displacements as large as 3 m.
