Saiful Bouquet is a leader in the use of State-of-the-Art Performance Based Engineering. SBI has extensive experience using nonlinear seismic analysis methods, such as static “pushover” and dynamic time history analyses, for the design of new buildings and the retrofit of existing buildings. SBI has performed nonlinear analyses for buildings constructed from a variety of construction materials including steel, concrete, and masonry and buildings utilizing high-tech energy dissipation devices such as base-isolation, manufactured dampers and buckling restrained braced frames.
The principals of SBI have presented / published numerous technical papers on seismic analysis and design, including many on the advanced nonlinear seismic analysis of buildings. These papers have been published in both national and international Professional Journals and Conference Proceedings. A list of selective publications is provided within.
