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.

Sample ET excitation functions and simple explanation of the concepts and how to's are provided.
