In recent years the evaluation of risk levels of existing buildings by Rapid-Visual- Screening (RVS) has become a common tool for seismic hazard assessment. If RVS is applied to buildings of similar type located in a well-defined urban area, it is useful to specify and to adapt existing screening rules and forms to the needs of these buildings. In a research effort presented in this paper the RVS procedure is adapted for the seismic assessment of historic residential brick-masonry buildings…

A Rapid-Visual-Screening Methodology for the Seismic Vulnerability Assessment of Historic Brick-Masonry Buildings in Vienna
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
Seismic Assessment of Historical Brick-Masonry Buildings in Vienna
This paper presents a methodology for the seismic assessment of Viennese brick-masonry buildings, which were built between 1848 and 1918. These buildings are particularly vulnerable to horizontal
