A simplified method for seismic vulnerability assessment of infilled RC buildings: Application at urban scale - B15

The results of the application of a simplified analytical method for the seismic vulnerability assessment of Reinforced Concrete buildings at large scale are presented. The method is applied to the Reinforced Concrete building stock data provided by the field survey carried out on a city in a high seismic area in Southern Italy. Uncertainties in seismic demand, material characteristics, and capacity models are taken into account through a Monte Carlo simulation technique. Fragility curves are obtained for each building, leading to the evaluation of annual failure probability at the assumed Damage States. The spatial distribution of annual failure probability at the different Damage States provides information on areas most prone to seismic risk within the city, depending both on building stock characteristics and on local amplification of seismic hazard due to soil conditions.
