Title: Performance-Based Engineering of Constructed Systems
Authors: Aktan, Ahmet Emin

Keywords: Civil Engineering;Participatory monitoring and evaluation (Project management)
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: Aktan, A. Amin
Abstract: This paper offers a synthesis of specification-based versus performance-based civil engineering and articulates the committee’s progress in framing and articulating: “what is performance-based civil engineering?”, “how can we objectively define performance?” and, “what are the issues that should be recognized along our way to performance-based engineering and their possible resolutions?
Description: This draft report has been completed and circulated within the committee and Performance of Structures TAC members, steps have been taken to merge the Performance-Based Design and Evaluation of Civil Engineering Facilities Committee with the Performance of Full-Scale Structures Committee. This merger took place during the 2004 Congress and a critical mass of academic and practicing members continue exploring how to innovate the art of civil engineering by taking advantage of the performance-based engineering paradigm.
