6 1) Improving USGS Input into HAZUS  FY06 & FY07 OMB Recommendation: Improve earthquake risk estimates by integrating the USGS Geologic Hazards Program seismic monitoring with FEMA hazard loss estimation capabilities.  FY06 Milestones (USGS Response):  Establish USGS-FEMA workgroup to develop joint plan for collaboration  Combine USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps with HAZUS methodology to generate probabilistic loss estimates  Produce prototype HAZUS-formatted ShakeMaps for destructive earthquake scenarios to facilitate generating loss estimates for the scenarios

7 1) Improving USGS Input into HAZUS  USGS-FEMA Plan on Future Opportunities:  Integration of USGS Seismic Monitoring with HAZUS for Earthquake Response  USGS Ground Motion “Plug-In” for HAZUS  Coordination of USGS/FEMA Earthquake Damage Research (“HAZUS-R”)  Joint Earthquake Risk Publications, Maps, and Associated Products  Example: Regional probabilistic loss distributions (i.e., beyond expected losses)

8 Regional Probabilistic Loss Distributions: Goal  Exceedance probability curves for total losses to a portfolio/region.  Combination of ground motion hazard, building exposure, and building fragilities.

9 Probabilistic Seismic Loss Analysis (PSLA)  PSHA-analogous methodology described in Wesson, Perkins, and Luco (2006): "Direct Calculation of the Probability Distribution for Earthquake Losses to a Portfolio"  Applications to date:  San Francisco Bay Area Residential Woodframe Losses (Luco et al for 2006 AGU Fall Meeting, manuscript in preparation)  Shelby County & Memphis Metro Bridges (Karaca & Luco for 5 th National Seismic Conference on Bridges & Highways)  Next applications will couple USGS hazard information with HAZUS exposure data and "revamped" HAZUS fragilities (described later in presentation)

10  For each individual building of the exposure, the output of PSHA (i.e., a hazard curve for the site) can be coupled with the building fragility to arrive at its “loss curve”:  If the losses for individual buildings were independent, a combined loss curve could be obtained via a simple convolution, e.g., …  But the losses for individual buildings are not independent, since their sites are shaken by the same earthquake events.  Bottom Line: We can’t simply start from the output of PSHA. Methodology: Motivation PSHA OutputFragility“Loss Curve”

11  Recall that Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) conditions on and sums over “all” potential earthquake events:  For a given "event" (defined below), the losses for individual buildings can be considered independent, and hence, e.g., …  Each “event” is defined here by: (i)M= magnitude of earthquake (ii)R= location of earthquake & corresponding distances to sites (iii)  inter = measure of average ground motion relative to other similar earthquake events (i.e., # of  inter ’s) Methodology: Extending PSHA

12  In summary, an exceedance curve for the sum of losses to all buildings in the exposure can be obtained via the following steps: 1)For each potential event, combine the fragility and site hazard for each building to obtain individual loss curves, i.e., … 2)Convolve the individual conditional loss curves to obtain a combined loss curve for each event, e.g., … 3)Sum (with event weights) the loss curves for each event, e.g., … Methodology: PSLA Summary Fragility Hazard

13 1) Input on USGS Role in Risk Field  FY05 USGS Venture Capital Fund Project  Proposed “National Seismic Risk Maps”  M. Petersen and N. Luco met with …  FM Global  AIR Worldwide Corporation  RMS (Risk Management Solutions)  ABS Consulting (formerly EQE)  CGS (California Geological Survey)  CEA (California Earthquake Authority)  FEMA & NIBS (with D. Applegate)

14 1) Input on USGS Role in Risk Field  Stakeholders encouraged …  Research into vulnerabilities and risk analysis, in addition to hazard  Results that they could compare with and/or utilize  Transparent risk calculations for sensitivity studies  Contribution to exposure data (e.g., by USGS Geography)  Evaluations of available vulnerabilities  Analyses for “public” buildings (e.g., homes)

15 1) Input on USGS Role in Risk Field  Stakeholders discouraged …  Development of risk modeling software  Risk results that become de facto standard (i.e., do be clear about uncertainties/shortcomings of results)  Competition  Stakeholders willing to cooperate, if not collaborate (similar to response to open- source risk-modeling software)

17 Building Risk Maps  Building risk maps show the mean annual frequencies (MAFs) of exceeding different structural damage states (or losses) for each of the 36 building types in HAZUS designed to 4 different code levels (Memphis, TN) =

18 Building Risk Maps Spectral acceleration, PGA, MMI, Inelastic spectral displacement, Inter-story drift ratio, … Fragility Curve P(DS = ds | Sa) P(DS ≥ ds | Sa) (Loss | DS = ds) Vulnerability Curve P(Loss ≥ loss | Sa)

27 USGS Mendenhall Postdoctoral Project  “Cost-Benefit Analysis of Earthquake Provisions in Building Codes”  In particular, reduction of losses around New Madrid Seismic Zone via adoption of seismic design maps in International Building Code (IBC)  Involves update of HAZUS fragilities to reflect IBC, and to depend on design ground motion  Also involves revamping of HAZUS fragilities for use in “Probabilistic Seismic Loss Analysis” (Wesson, Perkins & Luco, 2006)

28 Approach: SBC => IBC Hazard Fragility/Vulnerability Inventory Loss/Risk Cost? Reduced Risk?

29 HAZUS Building Fragilities Damage State Definition Capacity Spectrum Method Capacity Curve Fragility Curve Input: Inelastic Spectral Displacement

30 Revamping HAZUS Fragilities Damage State Definition Capacity Curve Time History Analysis Fragility Curve Input: Elastic Spectral Acceleration

31 Revamping HAZUS Fragilities  Revamped HAZUS fragilities are: 1)Based on nonlinear dynamic structural analysis rather than Capacity Spectrum Method. 2)Independent of ground motion variability, which is taken care of in hazard computation. 3)Fully probabilistic with variability in ground motion and building response properly accounted for.

32 Revamping HAZUS Fragilities  Revamped HAZUS fragilities are (continued): 4)In terms of ground motion parameters for which hazard is typically computed, e.g., S a (0.3s). 5)Available for a large number of structures (all HAZUS building types and code levels). 6)Can be easily combined with seismic hazard information to …  Evaluate seismic risk, e.g. seismic risk maps.  Estimate losses from a scenario event, e.g. seismic damage maps.  Evaluate building design/mitigation options, e.g. SBC vs IBC design.

33 Approach: SBC => IBC (Current/Future Work) Cost Reduced Risk

46  HAZUS – Example:  Expected Annual Loss (EAL) using USGS PSHMs  Not a true loss exceedance curve Area under Curve = EAL

47 Example: Earthquake Events & GM ’s (Hazard)  San Francisco Bay Region  Characteristic and floating earthquake events from USGS Working Group 2002  4 attenuation relations for ground motions   inter based on Lee & Anderson (BSSA, 2000)  3 different hazard programs used to compute median and dispersion of ground motion for each earthquake event and building site pair

48 Example: Buildings & Sites (Exposure)  Residential Woodframe Buildings – Inventory from HAZUS  Aggregated at census tract level  Within each census tract, one site per NEHRP site classification

49 Components of Risk/Loss Analysis  HAZARD e.g., National Seismic Hazard Maps, ShakeMaps  EXPOSURE e.g., HAZUS Inventory Data, USGS Geography  FRAGILITY (or VULNERABILITY) e.g., HAZUS Fragilities, Wesson et al (2004)  RESILIENCY e.g., Insurance, Cat. Bonds, Emergency Response
