Abstract

The existing building can become seismically deficient since seismic code requirements are constantly upgraded and advancement in engineering knowledge. A seismic performance evaluation was conducted for a four-story reinforced concrete (RC) residential building. The structural response is evaluated using pushover analysis. The FEMA 356 and FEMA 440 criteria were used to evaluate the seismic performance of the case study building. The calculated values related to the performance of the buildings indicate whether the response of the existing building is sufficient and if rehabilitation is required.
