Abstract : This report presents data on the cost of seismic strengthening for a new concrete structure for two strengthening concepts: moment frame and shear wall. Damage is related to drift and acceleration of key elements of the structure. A damage matrix is constructed relating damage to design level and applied loading. An economic analysis is performed evaluating cost of strengthening, the present worth of expected damage, and the probability of site acceleration levels. (Author)
