dc.description.abstractThis paper is a plea for a serious, major effort to apply benefit/risk analysis with regard to the anti-seismic design of engineered facilities. The paper discusses the obstacles to use of such analysis, describes in general terms a methodology for such analyses and a pilot application of this methodology to the choice of lateral force requirements for buildings, and discusses some of the problems that must be faced in applying this methodology in the new field of lifeline earthquake engineering.en
