The modifications to performance-based design methods, developed through examples using the pattern framework and presented in this thesis, incorporate performance considerations for all phases of the structure life cycle. These recommendations include: considering additional analysis patterns during design, using decision patterns that account for performance in all life cycle phases, and implementing set-based design methods for evaluating multiple design options.The relationships between the variables and the problem solving algorithm are perceived as in need of determination. ... The concept of model uncertainty in structural engineering (Ditlevsen, 1982) is related to level 2 ambiguity since both anbsp;...
