Highlights:

  • In this paper we tried to propose simplified formulas and rules of thumbs which assist designers to estimate the seismic behavior of buildings according to the initial spatial layout.
  • In masonry buildings which loads are distributed by curved masonry roofs and load bearing walls the interrelation between spatial layout and seismic behavior of building is maximum.
  • We proposed methods that assist designers to estimate the seismic vulnerability of each special unit due to its spatial functionality and related roofing system
  • We proposed methods estimating the influence of adjacency of units on seismic vulnerability of spatial units.
  • We proposed simplified formulas to estimate the magnitude and distribution form of lateral load on each load bearing wall.

Highlights:

  • Rasoulian House (in Yazd) was simulated in DesignBuilder Software
  • The simulation results were compared with experimental measurement data
  • The results showed that experimental data were 1–5°C different from the simulations
  • Probable causes of these differences were analyzed and suggestions were proposed
