Abstract:The Mid-America Earthquake (MAE) center aims to treat various uncertainties inherent in its Consequence-based Risk Management (CRM) in a systematic manner. In order to achieve this goal, a Task Group on Interdisciplinary Coordination (TGIC) of the MAE center develops a probabilistic framework to estimate the uncertainty in social and economic losses in a region caused by seismic hazard. This document presents the probabilistic framework under develop-ment with a numerical example. The total direct loss of an inventory of three buildings is esti-mated with its uncertainty quantified. We incorporate the uncertainties in the intensity of a sce-nario earthquake, inventory identification, performance of structural/non-structural components, content loss, liquefaction hazard, and damage states. Examples on the use of a probabilistic haz-ard map in regional loss estimation and on the direct loss of a bridge inventory are currently un-der development.
