Current standards for earthquake-resistant design of buildings do not control seismic risk to such an extent that would be acceptable for all types of structures and for all investors. This can be achieved with the proposed concept for risk-based design of buildings, which requires use of nonlinear methods of analysis and risk assessment, whereas decision on the adequate structural configuration depends on the definition of acceptable risk. Despitethe fact that the development of the design concept is in the initial phase, an eight- and a fifteen-storey reinforced concrete building were designed according to the proposed procedure by using PBEE Toolbox in conjunction with OpenSEES. It is shown that estimated collapse probability forthe final structural configurations is slightly smaller than the acceptableprobability of collapse, which was not satisfied for buildings designed according to Eurocode 8.
