Probabilistic Basis for Design When designing facilities for probabilistic loads, such as those caused by wind, earthquake, and flood, it is common practice to define a design event, such as a 25-year flood or 500-year earthquake. The time is the return period of the design event. For example, a 25-year flood is defined to be one which has a return period of 25 years, which implies the magnitude has an annual probability of occurrence of 1 รท 25 = 0.04% or 4%…
