Against the backdrop of rapid socio-economic development in our country and the accelerated pace of urbanization, the construction industry has been provided with a vast space for vigorous development. With the increasing demands for building quality, the design of civil engineering structures faces higher challenges and standards. Designers, in the design process, must not only pursue the aesthetic effect of buildings but also pay more attention to the safety of structures. Seismic design has received widespread attention in today's society, as its effectiveness is directly related to the stability and durability of building structures, which in turn affects the personal safety of building users. Therefore, in the design process of civil engineering structures, designers must establish advanced seismic design concepts, making seismic performance one of the core elements of design. To achieve this goal, designers need to scientifically and reasonably determine the seismic grade of buildings by combining multiple factors such as the geological conditions of the project location, history of seismic activity, and building usage. Meanwhile, advanced seismic technologies and materials need to be adopted to ensure that building structures can effectively absorb and disperse seismic energy during earthquakes, thereby maximally protecting the safety of buildings and their users.
