Abstract

 The purpose of this study was to develop the integrated risk assessment system for high-rise buildings reflecting the Korean Building Code and guidelines of Preliminary Disaster Inspection and Consultation Systems based on the analysis of FEMA’s IRVS in US. Through reviewing various hazards’ assessment factors, a classification system and methodology for evaluating risk scores in IRVS, applicable factors, limitation of systems to apply to a Korean future system and improvement to verify the assessment methodology are determined. The results of this study will be used to provide the framework and establish the practical goals for developing a Korean risk assessment system for high-rise buildings.
