Abstract : Of primary concern in earthquake-engineering practice is to predict the vulnerability of building structures erected in seismic prone areas. It is intended here, to emphasize the role and importance of actual soil-structure inter-systems connectivity in vulnerability analyses, further to harmonize damage evaluation processes with the limit state design philosophy. The influence of soils of foundation over the seismic response of structural system was found to be considered in earthquake resistant design in two ways as follows: by the seismic quality of soils identified as soil profiles and by the elastic or plastic support conditions of a given structure. The aim of this work is to give quantitative guide-lines to damage probability assessments in correlation with the limit state design strategy.
