This  study  provides  an  introduction  to  the  concepts  and  principles  of  seismic  design,  including  strategies  for  designing  earthquake­resistant  buildings  to  ensure  the  health,  safety,  and  security  of  building  occupants  and  assets.  There  are  three  main  factors  that  contribute  to  the  successful  seismic  design.  Firstly,  the  design  team  must  consider  a  multi­hazard  approach  in  designing  the  structure  that  accounts for the potential impacts of seismic forces as well as all the major hazards to which an area is  vulnerable.  Secondly,  considerations  need  to  be  made  pertaining  to  the  performance­based  requirements.  This  requirement  may  exceed  the  minimum  life  safety  requirements  of  current  seismic  codes.  Therefore,  the  safety  factor  must  be  established  to  respond  appropriately  to  the  threats  and  risks  posed  by  natural  hazards  on  the  building's  mission  and  occupants.  Thirdly,  since  earthquake  forces are  dynamic  and  each  building  responds according  to  its  own design  complexity,  it  is  essential  that the design team work collaboratively and have a common understanding of the terms and methods  used  in  the  seismic  design  process.  In  addition  to  that,  as  a  general rule,  building  that  is  designed  to  resist earthquakes should also resist blast (terrorism) or wind, suffering less damage.
