The workshop was organized to meet the needs and opportunities for research and practice in performance-based engineering. The objectives of the workshop were threefold: (1) to discuss different perspectives on performance-based engineering as it is applied to new and existing concrete buildings in Japan and the United States; (2) to exchange the latest findings related to the same subject; and (3) to enhance communications and promote opportunities for new and continuing collaboration. Sponsors of the workshop were the Japan Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture; the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center; and the U.S. National Science Foundation. The workshop covered the following topics: analysis of structures; interstory drift demands; seismic performance evaluation; design methodology; columns and nonstructural walls; scale effects, database analysis, and design equations; performance of beam-column joints and frames; and axial failure of columns. Three keynote reports and 31 papers are published in the proceedings.
