Considering the occupancy of future generation and the vulnerability of their lives in school time, it is considered being a timely requirement to assess the performance levels of school buildings for different return period earthquakes which happens without any advance notification. For this purpose, Fragility curves are developed using nonlinear finite element model of three storey type plan building developed in ‘OPENSEES’ computer program. The damage indices based on the inter-storey drift… 


Fragility Curves of Existing RC Buildings Based on Specific Structural Performance Levels
In seismic risk mitigation policies, fragility functions of existing buildings play a fundamental role. In this paper, a procedure to develop analytical fragility curves for Moment Resisting Frame
