The Performance Based Design in geotechnical engineering requires an extensive research work prior to the details establishment for the design. The seismic performance of the piles is certainly of this interest, thus worthwhile discussions for the engineers. This paper would allow one to find the example of the studies based on PBEE and EQWEAP analyse. A numerical study was conducted for the piles located in Taipei Basin where the seismic conditions are significantly important to the design engineers. Therefore the local seismic design concerns of the Building Code were also incorporated into the measurements. Follow the simplified form of PEER Framing equation, probabilities of the possible pile performance parameters were able to examine whereas the prospectives of such analyses are suggested accordingly.
