Abstract

This study developed a method to assess a building’s risk against disaster, tentatively named the Korean Integrated Disaster Evaluation Simulator (K-IDES). Based on previous studies analyzing FEMA’s risk management series in the US, the FEMA IRVS was selected as a case study for developing a framework for the K-IDES. Through the comparative analysis of domestic building design guides, codes, and special legislation related to disasters, a risk assessment methodology for quantitative results was developed. The assessment method consists of a classification system, a calculation for the quantification of risk, and a simulation in which the developed checklist for the K-IDES is applied to similar types of high-rise buildings to validate its accuracy. The final goal was to systemize an integrated risk management strategy for a building against disasters, checking for vulnerable areas from the conceptual stage of the design, and to utilize the risk management strategy after construction.
