Preliminary extension of First Order Reliability Methods for combined seismic and wind hazard loss estimation for a portfolio of buildings Corotis, Ross B.; Bonstrom, Holly


In this paper, an initial analysis is performed to assess the potential loss to a building portfolio subjected to multiple, independent hazards. The procedure extends prior research that uses the First Order Reliability Method (FORM) to analyze the vulnerability of a portfolio of buildings to a seismic hazard. The paper includes discussion of issues to consider for community-wide damage measures and dependencies. The results are applied to Charleston, South Carolina, a community that has both seismic and hurricane hazards.
