Abstract

In this paper substantial improvements of the standard procedure at National Seismic Survey (NSS) for the earthquake damage scenarios are proposed. Meth- odology and data bases have been modified and a comparison of different earth- quake loss estimation models is presented. The main characteristics of the proposed methodology are the following: - a scale of resolution including all inhabited places; - a residential building inventory sorted in structural classes and a binomial dis- tribution of the damage levels; - empirical fragility curves and damage probability matrices as a function of Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA), Arias Intensity (IA), Effective Peak Accel- eration (EPA), MCS Intensity (MCSI); - possibility of taking into account the site geological effects. The simulated scenarios have been compared with loss
