A complete methodology is presented for the seismic fragility assessment of reinforced concrete high‐rise buildings. The key steps of the methodology are illustrated through an example of the fragility assessment of an existing 54‐story building with a dual core wall system. The set of rigorously derived probabilistic fragilities are the first published for high‐rise reinforced concrete buildings. The inelastic nonlinear dynamic analyses for the fragility assessments are made using a simplified… 

Incremental dynamic collapse analysis of RC core‐wall tall buildings considering spatial seismic response distributions

Despite wide‐ranging studies on fragility analysis and collapse safety assessment of short to medium‐rise reinforced concrete (RC) structures, a new interest in the topic is still valuable and even

Seismic Fragility Assessment of Reinforced Concrete High-Rise Buildings Using the Uncoupled Modal Response History Analysis (UMRHA)

In this study, a simplified approach for the analytical development of fragility curves of high-rise RC buildings is presented. It is based on an approximate modal decomposition procedure known as

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

Rigorous versus less-demanding fragility relations for RC high-rise buildings

TLDR
Using the proposed methodology, the study revealed that fairly reliable seismic scenario-based fragility sets can be developed for RC high-rise buildings with a significant reduction in computational time and efforts.

Seismic fragility assessment of RC high-rise buildings in Montenegro

This paper presents seismic fragility assessment of RC high rise-buildings in Montenegro. The key points of the procedure for obtaining the fragility curves are described by using algorithm, defined

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR RC HIGH-RISE WALL BUILDINGS EXPOSED TO VARIED SEISMIC SCENARIOS

As a result of population growth and consequent urbanisation, the number of high-rise buildings is rapidly growing worldwide resulting in increased exposure to multiple-scenario earthquakes and

Seismic performance and cost‐effectiveness of high‐rise buildings with increasing concrete strength

The relationship between the seismic performance and economics of high‐rise buildings when designed to different material strengths is investigated in this paper. To represent the modern high‐rise
