Seismic vulnerability of an existing strategic RC building using non linear static and dynamic analyses

Abstract

Algeria is the most seismically active country in the northern part of Africa, and it has so far suffered a number of catastrophic earthquakes. The 2003 Boumerdes earthquake, magnitude 6.8, was the most devastating earthquake that occurred near the capital Algiers, killing and injuring thousands of people. Many existing strategic RC buildings were severely damaged and hence made unfit for use after the earthquake. Seismic vulnerability of an old RC concrete strategic building designed without consideration for any seismic loading is assessed in the paper.

Keywords
seismic vulnerability, RC building, nonlinear dynamic and static analysis, story drift displacements
