Abstract

Within heritage buildings, a distinction can be made between historical buildings and monumental buildings: the former can be identified with the buildings of artistic and/or cultural value that are found in significant numbers (for example in historic centres of modern towns), while the latter are really unique buildings. In order to assess the seismic vulnerability of monumental buildings, a specific reliability analysis must be usually performed. In this paper, an ad-hoc procedure for this assessment is presented and illustrated with reference to an example case. The procedure is based on the macroelement approach, and on the probabilistic description of the relevant quantities: the whole structural system is thus broken into few macroelements (e.g. the whole façade of a church) whose behaviour can be typified and is significant for the response of the entire building. The procedure can also be used to evaluate the probability distribution of damages among similar monumental buildings.
