A new approach to seismic assessment of structures called endurance time method (ETM) is developed. ETM is a dynamic analysis procedure in which intensifying dynamic excitations are used as the loading function. ETM provides many unique benefits in seismic assessment and design of structures and is a response history-based procedure. ETM considerably reduces the computational effort needed in typical response history analyses.

Science diplomacy and policy can support collaborative national and international science for advancing knowledge with societal impact in fields such as climate, space, medicine, and the environment. Scientific advances made possible by the basic and applied research carried out by government agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations create opportunities and challenges with growing impact on policy decisions. Developing structures that produce the best science information to policy makers is becoming more critical in an ever-changing world.
