Research Brief: Generating Component-level Building-specific Fragility Curves
One of the most essential tools for representing the vulnerability of a structure is the fragility curve. By capturing the probability of damage at a given load level, fragility curves provide a way to express how a structure may respond to wind, fire, or seismic hazards. CSHub researchers have developed a method to integrate the structural and non-structural members into a single materials-specific fragility curve for any given building type.
