AbstractA method for lateral load resistance evaluation of structures that experienced damaged during a fire was developed. The method was implemented for a performance evaluation of a 6-storey reinforced concrete building subjected to lateral displacement, after fire damage. This study shows that the proposed method is a practical cost-effective and reasonably accurate method for assessing seismic resistance of structures after a fire. The test results showed a reduction of both stiffness and seismic resistance capacity of the fire-damaged building.
