Paper Title:
Performance-Based Seismic Evaluation of Historical Buildings
  Abstract

In this paper, limit state criteria for safety evaluation of historical buildings according to different target period of usage were introduced briefly. The effect of beam-column connection and the contribution of bricks surrounded columns and infill masonry walls on the seismic behavior of the historical buildings were identified based on calculation results. Main features of performance-based seismic evaluation method, including classification of importance of historical buildings, determination of target period of usage and performance index, were discussed. An engineering project was discussed to illustrate the evaluation procedures, and verify the effectiveness of the evaluation method.
