In this study, we design, based on Eurocodes 2 and 8, a set of six reinforced concrete buildings corresponding to different geometries and two levels of design peak ground acceleration (0.1 and 0.3g). The response of these buildings to earthquake shaking is modelled numerically using state-of-the-art computer software to develop fragility curves for different limit states. We find that while the design acceleration has some influence on the fragility curves, other parameters such as the number of storeys also affect them. These preliminary results are useful for improving the procedures for risk-targeting.
