Abstract
Risk assessment and management is an important step towards resilient and sustainable cities. Among many other perils, both natural and manmade, seismic risk is a major threat for resilience and sustainability. In recent decades, several methods for seismic risk assessment have been proposed, including the well-known Vulnerability Index Method (VIM). In this study, a probabilistic version of the VIM, which we call the Vulnerability Index Method-Probabilistic (VIM_P), is proposed. The VIM_P requi...
