Paper Title:
Seismic Assessment of Bell Towers of Mexican Colonial Churches
  Abstract

The seismic assessment of bell towers of churches built during the colonial period in Mexico is studied. Two representative typologies of churches of the southwest of Mexico are considered. The results of non-linear static and the non-linear dynamic analyses are compared. The results show that it is not recommended the use of non-linear static analyses; being necessary the use of full non-linear dynamic analyses.
