The seismic risk of the buildings of Barcelona, Spain, is analyzed by using a method based on the capacity spectrum. The seismic hazard in the area of the city is described by means of the reduced 5% damped elastic response spectrum. Obtaining fragility curves for the most important building types of an urban center requires an important amount of(More)
In this work, we analyze the influence of masonry infill walls on the seismic performance of waffle slabs reinforced concrete (RC) framed structures. We analyze buildings of three, five and eight storeys, which are representative for a big number of housings in Barcelona, Spain. Capacity spectra have been obtained by performing pushover analyses and we have(More)
