Abstract
Unreinforced masonry buildings prevail in many old historical centres and urban areas worldwide. These structures may present inadequate seismic performance because they were often designed without considering any seismic resistance requirements. Therefore, they may be highly vulnerable and susceptible to damage caused by earthquakes, even of low intensity. This work investigates the seismic vulnerability of typical unreinforced masonry buildings situated in the Eixample district of Barcelona, S...
