This paper approaches the issue of seismic vulnerab ility assessment strategies for facade walls of tra ditional masonry buildings through the development of a meth odology and its subsequent application to the old b uilding stock of the historical city centre of Coimbra. Over 600 building facades were evaluated in accordance to the methodology developed. From the post-earthquake dam age assessment of masonry buildings in Aquila, Ital y, it was developed and calibrated an analytical function o…

RISK ASSESSMENT OF HISTORIC RESIDENTIAL BRICK-MASONRY BUILDINGS IN VIENNA BY RAPID-VISUAL-SCREENING

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

Seismic Risks Mitigation of Façadism Constructions with Supplemental Energy Dissipation

Results demonstrate that the suggested structural system is an effective methodology to suppress seismic responses of the facade and the new construction, and at the same time seismic responses to the newly constructed structure can be controlled.
