Abstract

 A framework of seismic design method appropriate for earthquake disaster conditions of developing countries is proposed. For countries in which seismic load data is either unavailable or incomplete, a rational and simple seismic design guideline is developed utilizing the performance-based seismic design approach. For this purpose, the current seismic design practice in Syria is discussed.
