Abstract
The purpose of this paper is the analysis in the parallel damage evaluation of buildings and the furniture in the building when structural durability is changed. Targeted structure is middle and low-rise office building in the steel frame. This paper sets the Qu/Qun (the horizontal load bearing capacity; Qu / the required held horizontal yield strength; Qun ) as the analysis parameters. In this study, it performs a response value evaluated by the seismic response analysis, the damage evaluation of the building itself is analyzed by earthquake losses calculated by the Seismic Risk Analysis. Moreover, the effect of the furniture in the building is analyzed by the evaluation of overturning ratio.As a result of damage evaluation of building and furniture in the parallel analysis and increased the Qu/Qun. Increased Qu/Qun affect for reducing building damage , on the other hand it does not improve for the overturning ratio of furniture.
