Abstract

IE-RISS is a sophisticated system developed by the consultant company INTEGRAL and EAFIT University, keeping in mind worldwide needs of understanding and managing earthquake risk. IE-RISS system analyzes earthquake risk through a probabilistic approach, taking into account detailed information about seismic hazard, soil properties and its associated earthquake ground response, and building characteristics. This tool allows the development earthquake disaster prevention programs through identification of critical zones or regions, definition of potential damage distribution and loss estimates. Quantification of damage associated to the 1999 Armenia earthquake in Colombia made possible to evaluate the validity and reliability of IE-RISS system in determining earthquake risk potential. This paper presents main approach of IE-RISS system, simulation results of the Armenia earthquake scenario using this model, and its comparison with real damage distribution and quantification of losses in this city of Colombia.

Simulation of Damage Associated to the 1999 Armenia Earthquake Using IE-RISS System

New York, New York

IE-RISS is a sophisticated system developed by the consultant company INTEGRAL and EAFIT University, keeping in mind worldwide needs of understanding and managing earthquake risk. IE-RISS system analyzes earthquake risk through a probabilistic approach, taking into account detailed information about seismic hazard, soil properties and its associated earthquake ground response, and building characteristics. This tool allows the development earthquake disaster prevention programs through identification of critical zones or regions, definition of potential damage distribution and loss estimates. Quantification of damage associated to the 1999 Armenia earthquake in Colombia made possible to evaluate the validity and reliability of IE-RISS system in determining earthquake risk potential. This paper presents main approach of IE-RISS system, simulation results of the Armenia earthquake scenario using this model, and its comparison with real damage distribution and quantification of losses in this city of Colombia.
