Seismic damage to urban buildings can be simulated more rationally and accurately using the nonlinear multiple degree-of-freedom (MDOF) models and the high-performance computing method introduced in Chaps.  8 11. Such simulations established a solid foundation for regional earthquake loss predictions.
