Extensive development of complete set of equipment
fragilities is not within the purview of academic NSF-
funded research - responsibility of industry.
To allow development of the methodology to proceed
forward, research will proceed with
Results of piping systems research (PI: M. Maragakis, UNR)
Fragility curves available for some types of equipment (e.g.
suspended ceilings; PIs: A. Whittaker & A. Reinhorn, UB)
Development of experimental fragility curves for specific
nonstructural components (PI: A. Filiatrault, UB)
Theoretical development of a fragility curve for a non-
structural distributed system (PI: M. Gregoriu).
