A Markov model is proposed to evaluate seismic performance and sensitivity to initial state of structural systems and determine the vulnerability of structures exposed to one or more earthquakes. The method of analysis is based on the seismic hazard modeled by a filtered Poisson process, nonlinear dynamic analysis for estimating structural response to earthquakes, uncertainty in initial damage state, and failure conditions incorporating damage accumulation during consecutive seismic events.doi:10.1061/(asce)0733-9445(1993)119:6(1844) fatcat:3igxeivr4vb2fhsfsrmcx5znj4
