  author={Radomir J. Foli{\'c} and Milo{\vs} {\vC}oki{\'c}},
In this paper, the seismic response of a five-story reinforced concrete (RC) frame system building is analysed through fragility analysis. The structure is designed in accordance with structural Eurocodes EN1990, EN1991, EN1992 and EN1998, as a high-ductility (DCH) system. For the analysis of the response of a structural system to earthquake actions, the methods of nonlinear static (NSA) and nonlinear dynamic analyses (NDA) are applied and, based on the obtained results, fragility curves are…

Vulnerability assessment of reinforced concrete framed structures considering the effect of structural characteristics
Considering the effects of earthquakes occurred during the last 15 years, this article focusses on finding solu- tions to minimize the human and economic losses. Several methodologies were developed
Seismic Reliability and Risk Assessment of Structures Based on Fragility Analysis – A Review
A practical approach to explain the consequences of seismic hazards for society and decision making organisations is predicting the seismic risk. In this regard, the Probabilistic Seismic Hazard
This paper describes procedures of building damage assessment in earthquake loss estimation methodology in Taiwan, and focuses on evaluation of parameters used in the building damage assessment.
An Overview of PEER's Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering Methodology
Various analytical approaches to performance-based earthquake engineering are in devel- opment. This paper summarizes the approach being pursued by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Re- search
An overview of modern seismic analyses with different ways of damping introduction
Damping has been systematized based on the way it was introduced into calculations, i.e. over material damping, link element damping and damping directly introduced into the analyses which are conducted in capacitive, time and frequency domains and the aspects of damping modelling in structural analysis are presented.
Seismic fragility assessment for reinforced concrete high-rise buildings in Southern Euro-Mediterranean zone
This paper presents seismic fragility assessment of RC high rise-buildings for seismic excitation, typical for Southern Euro-Mediterranean zone. The fragility curves were derived and log-normal
Macroseismic and mechanical models for the vulnerability and damage assessment of current buildings
The European Commission funded the RISK-UE project in 1999 with the aim of providing an advanced approach to earthquake risk scenarios for European towns and regions. In the framework of Risk-UE
Seismic performance assessment based on damage of structures, Part 1: Theory
The paper presents methodology for safety assessment and design of earthquake resistant structures based on application of damage spectra. The damage spectrum can be used for seismic evaluation of
Review of fragility curves for seismic risk assessment of buildings in Europe
Earthquakes represent a serious threat for several European countries, particularly for Mediterranean bordering countries, where seismic events have been triggering significant destruction and loss
Seismic fragility estimates for reinforced concrete framed buildings
Fragility estimates are developed to assess the seismic vulnerability of GLD RC buildings in the Mid-America Region using a Bayesian methodology to develop probabilistic demand models to predict the maximum inter story drift given the spectral acceleration at the fundamental period of the building.
