Endurance Time Method
Welcome to the website of the Endurance Time Method!
Endurance Time Method (ETM) is a dynamic analysis procedure for seismic assessment of Structures. In ETM, intensifying dynamic excitations are used for response history analysis. By estimating the structural response at all intensity levels in a single response history analysis, ETM can hugely reduce the enormous computational demand of conventional response history based procedures. In this way, performance and design optimization can be done in a relatively simple way.
This website is designed for the purpose of sharing basic information and promoting best practices in the application of the ET Method.
