Abstract
The exponential increase in the world’s population, together with the growth of big cities, which is characterized by the inadequate occupancy of the soil, contributes augment the damage due to seismic catastrophes. The high concentration of population, buildings, in-frastructures and valuables exposed, turn these zones into high risk areas. Most of earth-quake casualties are due to buildings collapsing, that is some 90% of direct deaths. The current study contributes to the development and ap...
