What is it about?
This paper presents and validates an analytical formulation, denoted as Performance Prediction Equations (PPEs), that relates the seismic response (EDP) of buildings to earthquake parameters such as magnitude, epicentral distance, and type of faulting. PPEs are conceptually novel and can be readily included in any hazard calculation program to directly estimate EDP hazard curves.

Why is it important?
PPEs are conceptually novel and can be readily included in any hazard calculation program to directly estimate EDP hazard curves. Utilization of PPEs in Performance-Based Seismic Assessment eliminates one source of uncertainty in loss estimation by removing the intermediate step required to relate seismic hazard to ground motion intensity measure and directly connects the response of a structure to seismic hazard.
