The issues of the response of buildings to dynamic loading effects caused by natural seismicity have become a focus of great interest worldwide. According to the latest observations and calculations, the seismic hazard for buildings, mainly in seismically active regions of the Czech Republic, has increased, together with the area of the territories where buildings must be assessed for seismic effects. It is primarily historic and listed buildings with vaulted structures, or even partially
