This research study investigates the estimated economic and social losses of reinforced concrete moment resisting frame building by using FEMA P-58, the next-generation Seismic Performance Assessment methodology for Buildings developed by American Applied Technology Council (ATC), in 2012). Dynamic time history, using twelve ground motion records from near and far-fault regions, has been used to perform the seismic analysis of the considered model configurations. The typical buildings are vulnerable to earthquake damage, therefore it could be considered that the economic and social losses are a function of damage of the buildings. Damages vary according to ability of building to resist ground motion and other aspects such as geographic differences of ground motion. In the current paper, the probabilistic approach FEMA P-58 with nonlinear time history analysis applied to calculate the consequences of the seismic activities, these consequences are presented by repair time, repair cost and casualties. PACT (Performance Assessment Calculation Tool) is used to calculate performance or the losses, these are repair cost, repair time and casualties, PACT is a main tool in FEMA P-58 methodology. The CSI Software ETABS is applied in this study for 3-D modeling and obtaining drift ratio. The building used as a case study is an educational reinforced concrete building in Al-Mustaqbal university college in Al-Hilla city, Babylon governorate.

Keywords : FEMA P-58, PACT, Earthquake Loss Estimation, Time History Analysis, Ground Motion Selection, Residual Drift.
