ABSTRACT: An approach for assessing the seismic fragility of inelastic structures is presented. In this approach, the structural response, which is evaluated from response spectra with an associated probability distribution, is compared with the performance limits states to assess fragility. Formulas that provide the probability distribution of spectral ordinates are developed based on the crossing theory of random functions and the equivalent linearization method. The ground motion is modeled… CONTINUE READING
