Abstract:Analytical investigations have shown that due to total risk/loss concept, hazard-loss relationships that are unacceptably scattered for individual building loss calculations can be utilized to estimate risk/loss at regional level. This statement is proven to be valid especially for building populations that possess low-level correlation in terms of their dynamic response characteristics. Furthermore, sensitivity investigations on biased building populations have shown that among investigated parameters, (1) ground motion categories, (2) number of stories, (3) floor aspect ratio and (4) wall area to floor area ratio are the most significant parameters in regional risk/loss calculations.
