Abstract
In many seismic areas of the world, there are nowadays vulnerable structures, designed and built without seismic codes or using outdated codes. The seismic vulnerability of the buildings is, sometimes, not so difficult to be intuited. However, when vulnerability is to be estimated in a numerical way, a coherent conceptual framework and a methodology, not so easy to be developed, is required. Now we are faced with a complex and complicated problem which we have to solve without disregarding the u...
