Introdution- This paper reviews Performance Based approach (also called Direct Displacement Design method) pier structures, and is built as an extension of the standards developed by POLA/POLB1. The paper reviews performance design of the pier structures supported on steel pipe piles with steel pipe “shear plug†connectors, and benefits of steel pipe sections for design of piers in regions with a moderate to high seismic activity.
