Abstract

Bukit Tinggi may experience low earthquake hazard but are still at high risk of substantial damage and loss. Dense concentration of buildings and infrastructure in some areas mainly due to the hospitality industry can generate this high risk level. This study is focused on identify, inventory and rank buildings in Bukit Tinggi to assess seismic vulnerability buildings. The methodology is based on the rapid visual screening (RVS) procedure. Major parameters that have effects on the building score are primary structural lateral-load-resisting system, construction material, and other seismic related characteristic such as soiltype and building irregularity. Building with higher S scores corresponding to better seismic performance. Most of the buildings in Bukit Tinggi are less seismic risk 74% while another 26% considered in need of further evaluation.
