Welcome!


Welcome to the website of the Endurance Time Method! 

Endurance Time (ET) method is a dynamic analysis procedure for seismic assessment of Structures. In ET method, response history analysis is carried out using intensifying dynamic excitations. By providing an estimate of the structural response at the complete range of intensity levels in a response history analysis, ET analysis hugely reduces the computational demand required in conventional nonlinear response history analysis procedures. Thus, performance and value based design optimization can be carried out in a relatively simple and straightforward manner.
This website has been designed for the purpose of sharing information and promoting best practices in the applications of the Endurance Time Method.
Sample ET excitation functions and simple explanation of the concepts and how to's are provided.
