The paper presents the seismic vulnerability analysis of the military dry dock built in 1861 inside the messina’s harbor the study appears very important not only for the relevance of the dry dock itself, but also for its social, military and symbolic role.
Assess the seismic vulnerability of historical masonry constructions  because the effort spent for the detailed modeling is compensated by the relevance of the structure however, the post-elastic behavior of masonry materials is quite uncertain to define, but it is a key. In seismically active cities like kathmandu, there often exists a need to assess the seismic vulnerability of a large number of poorly designed buildings within a short period of time traditional analysis techniques do not work because they require building data that are either inaccurate or . This paper focuses on seismic vulnerability assessment for one-story tilt-up concrete structures to capture the potential failure mechanisms, an analytical modelling approach using nonlinear properties is developed and verified with measured data from a shake table test documented in the literature.
Being located in kathmandu, one of the highly seismic prone cities among 27 megacities of the world makes the stadium very susceptible to earthquakes furthermore, the structures of stadium is built more than 5 decades ago, which is the normal life of any concrete structures.

The seismic vulnerability assessment of old masonry buildings is essential not only to buildings with recognised historical and heritage value but also to ordinary residential masonry buildings this paper approaches the seismic vulnerability assessment of masonry buildings by applying a simplified . Seismic vulnerability is a measure of how susceptible a building is to damage for a given severity of the ground shaking (borzia, b, pinhob, r and crowleya, h, 2008).

Seismic vulnerability assessment of building types in india technical document (tech-doc) on seismic vulnerability assessment methods for buildings. Seismic vulnerability assessment exercise poses several difficulties as demand and capacity calculations depend not only on earthquake parameters but also on the structures the present. Vulnerability and loss assessment purposes, since it is a monetary index table 3: definition of damage states (levels) to correlate these damage states to an analytical expression of damage, the. Seismic vulnerability is a critical issue in italy, because the bulk of existing structures were designed before enforcement of the new national building code in 2008 and the ensuing seismic risk map, which assigns a nonnegligible peak ground acceleration (pga) to previously nonseismic areas thus .
Seismic assessment show that the most components of considered power distribution network are seismically vulnerable due to lack of anchor, insufficient connections,.
