Safe but Disposable Buildings – Assessment of Seismic Loss and Downtime for Code-Compliant California Buildings



Curt B. Haselton, Ph.D., P.E. is the John F. O’Connell Endowed Professor of Civil Engineering at California State University, Chico, and the Co-Founder and CEO of Haselton Baker Risk Group ( and the Seismic Performance Prediction Program (SP3); SP3 is a commercial tool to implement FEMA P-58 analyses, with the goal of making broad use of resilience-based design and risk assessment feasible in structural engineering practice.  Dr. Haselton's research is in the area of performance-based and resilience-based earthquake engineering, with focuses on damage and loss estimation, building code development, collapse safety assessment, ground motion selection and scaling, and the treatment of uncertainties. Dr. Haselton was recently the chair of the Building Seismic Safety Council team to rewriting Chapter 16 of the ASCE 7 national building code.
