Abstract

A large amount of new and existing data was applied, aiming at delineating structural seismic risk in the earthquake prone modern city of Kalamata (SW Peloponnese) that was largely reconstructed after the devastating Mw=5.8 earthquake of September 13, 1986. Synthetic site-specic ground motion parameters derived from the nearest known shallow hazardous seismogenic sources were combined with EMS-98 structural vulnerability estimates of the city's building stock and four structural and economic loss models have been developed on a building-block scale. Assuming absence of non-linear, nearsource effects, the building stock of Kalamata is anticipated to present sufficient seismic behaviour, due to the large number of new and innovative constructions replacing the demolished ones after the 1986 earthquake.
