This manual provides guidance for performance-based design and evaluation of concrete hydraulic structures (CHS). It introduces procedures that show how to design or evaluate a hydraulic structure to have a predictable performance for specified levels of seismic hazard. Traditional design and evaluation procedures may still be used for feasibility and screening purposes. However, for critical facilities, they should be followed by the procedures of this manual to prevent sudden collapse even thought the structure may suffer severe damage, to limit damage to a repairable level, or to maintain functionality immediately after the earthquake.
