 Summary:
 As it is known, Portugal is a country prone to seismic activity. After the 1755'sdevastating Lisbon Earthquake, the city's downtown was rebuilt with "Pombalino"masonry buildings. This type of buildings includes a three-dimensional timber structureenclosed in masonry walls aiming to provide seismic resistance to these structures.Most of these buildings need structural strengthening interventions and therefore the maingoal of this paper is the seismic vulnerability assessment of the structural performance ofan existing "Pombalino" masonry building modified by local strengthening systems.The structure was modeled in the 3Muri software based on the non-linear equivalent framemodel approach. The in-plane capacity curves were found out by incremental static(pushover) analysis, to establish the buildings global structural performance.
