This paper addresses seismic vulnerability assessment of historic brick-masonry buildings located in the city of Vienna based on Rapid-Visual-Screening (RVS). The RVS methodology has been adopted for this specific type of buildings considering their consistent typology and consequently, enhancing the validity and quality of the seismic assessment. In this connection two parameters of the inspected object are evaluated, i.e. the damage relevance and an overall structural parameter. Based on the…
