Abstract

A methodology for characterizing earthquake effects based on building damage records is introduced. The methodology utilizes fuzzy set theory for damage data deduction and for correlation of damage with the magnitude of an earthquake. A case study of the 1886 Charleston, South Carolina, earthquake is presented.
