Office of Research
Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER)
The mission of the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) is to develop, validate, and disseminate performance-based seismic design technologies for buildings and infrastructure to meet the diverse economic and safety needs of owners and society. PEER's research defines appropriate performance targets, and develops engineering tools and criteria that can be used by practicing professionals to achieve those targets, such as safety, cost, and post-earthquake functionality.
