Seismic vulnerability analysis is a fertile area of research which needs more input from seismologists and engineers. This paper focuses on the development of fragility curves for a twelve-story reinforced concrete (RC) hospital building structure in India. Fragility curve is a statistical tool representing the probability of exceeding a given damage state to the earthquake intensity. A set of earthquake records were selected from PEER data base for the development of fragility curves…

Seismic resilience evaluation of base-isolated RC buildings using a loss-recovery approach
The benefit of the suggested approach is found in terms of loss-recovery and seismic resilience that will be well recognized by the decision-maker for better planning to decrease seismic losses, rather than waiting for an earthquake and paying for it afterward.
