User manual for SLAT: Seismic Loss Assessment Tool version 1.14
SLAT is a computer program for performing seismic loss assessment of structures subjected to earthquake risk. SLAT is written in FORTRAN and compatible with Microsoft operating systems. The tool uses the uncoupled modelling approach advocated by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Centre, where the loss is computed through the use of interim variables. This user manual is intended as a reference for users of SLAT to aid in: (i) the preparation of the primary input file; (ii) the preparation of external data files; (iii) the theory behind the numerical algorithm of the SLAT program; (iv) example problems for beginning users; and (v) the database of component fragility and loss functions built into the SLAT library. While every effort has been made to ensure that the subroutines comprising SLAT are bugfree, users should always use simple checks and engineering judgment to ensure that the results are appropriate. Should any suspected errors be found please contact the author.
