- Steel structures are often used in building constructions. However, in seismic area these structures could suffer heavy damages, especially those build according ancient seismic codes. To assess the seismic vulnerability of such structures, studies must be conducted. The aim of the present work is to develop a simple method which gives a state of a studied building according the seismic code in practice. This method is called “Vulnerability index method” and aimed to identify the most important parameters that play a role in the seismic behavior of steel structures. Then weighting factors are determined letting the calculation of a vulnerability index. Then, the studied building is classified according a given classification. Two examples were given to show the efficiency of the method.
