## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

- Presenting the capabilities of integrating a freely available dataset gathered from VGI (without having to inspect individual buildings) to derive a probabilistic exposure model for residential buildings in Valparaíso and Viña del Mar (Chile), based on the inferred building footprint area for certain typologies.
- In addition to better characterising the building composition, this approach has improved its spatial representation by downscaling a coarser existing exposure model onto higher-resolution regular grids. Then, a large magnitude earthquake scenario can be defined, and a related set of exhaustive seismic ground motion fields through the variation of some of its driving parameters can be constructed.
- Use the former set of groung motions along with the three exposure models as inputs to independently calculate the direct economic losses that are expected from the building portfolio subjected to such a worst-case earthquake scenario. This vulnerability assessment allows us to propagate and compare the uncertainties embedded in the exposure models with respect to the parameters used to constrain the seismic ground motions.

## 3. Materials and Methods

#### 3.1. Delimitation of the Urban Area and Some Initial Features

#### 3.2. Building Exposure and Vulnerability Models for Valparaíso

#### 3.2.1. The Initial Commune-Based SARA Exposure Model with Merged Classes

- We did not consider the class “UNK” (unknown) because it lacked observable attributes. Its proportion (~10%) was redistributed to the other classes.
- We combined five pairs of classes into a more generic enclosing typology that had a similar taxonomic description and only differed in their storey ranges. These were ER-ETR-H1 within ER-ETR-H1-2, MCF-DNO-H1 within MCF-DNO-H1-3, MUR-ADO-H1 within MUR-ADO-H1-2, W-WLI-H1 within W-WLI-H1-3, and W-WS-H1 within W-WS-H1-2.

^{2})) were derived from the “reference average area per dwelling” values as a function of the construction quality reported in [67] for Chile. They were 70 m

^{2}, 80 m

^{2}, and 70 m

^{2}for the upper, middle, and lower construction quality, respectively. Aligned with the construction practices in Valparaíso and with the last two Chilean seismic codes (NCh433 Of.72, [70] and NCh433 Of.96 [71]), the earthen, masonry, and non-ductile (excluding RC) types were assumed to have a lower construction quality, wooden and non-ductile RC classes had a middle one, and ductile RC classes had an upper quality. The values of such categorizations were multiplied by the number of dwellings per class and then divided by their respective average numbers of storeys. Finally, they were divided by the number of buildings per class to obtain the inferred building footprint area per typology. This procedure is illustrated in Table A1.

^{2}) values of the reclassified typologies are reported in Table 2.

^{2}. This type of procedure is comprehensively described in [72]. The disaggregation assumed a fixed number of nighttime residents per building typology. The highest spatial resolution of the aggregated exposure model of the original SARA model was made available at the third administrative division of Chile (commune). This means that our area of interest (Valparaíso and Viña del Mar) was only composed of two large geo-cells (Figure 3). Hence, one of the shortcomings of the SARA model is that the spatial distribution of buildings is unknown, because all of the exposure information is provided at the centroid of each geo-cell. Thus, this assumption disregards the outcomes from land use classifications, which is particularly relevant for Valparaíso, as can be seen from Figure A1. Although this resolution could be sufficient for regional seismic risk estimates [73], it would not be adequate for more detailed analysis using local ground motions or when aiming for future urban requalification (e.g., [74]). Thus, a direct downscaling of such information into a more detailed resolution was needed. This was initially carried out in [50]. This process is explained in the following section.

#### 3.2.2. Preliminary Model: A Simple Downscaling Using Spatial Disaggregation of Population

#### 3.2.3. Ancillary Data Available for Valparaíso

#### OpenStreetMap (OSM)

#### Data Collection of Taxonomic Attributes in Valparaíso and Building Classification

#### 3.2.4. Bayesian Exposure Model for Valparaíso

#### 3.2.5. Comparison of Exposure Models Available for Valparaíso

- The first model (Section 3.2.1) is quite similar to the original SARA model, since it maintains its spatial representation over the administrative units. Its composition consists of the combination of similar classes in terms of their height.
- The second model (preliminary downscaled model, Section 3.2.2) constitutes the spatial disaggregation of the former onto higher resolutions of regular grid cells (500 m × 500 m). The total number of buildings was estimated by disaggregating the population at the block level from the 2017 official Chilean census.

#### 3.3. Generation of Seismic Ground Motion Fields for an Earthquake Scenario

#### 3.3.1. Ground Motion Prediction Equation (GMPE)

#### 3.3.2. Site Term (Spatial Distribution of Vs_{30})

_{30}values) as the only proxy. The sensitivity analysis of this term was performed considering three Vs

_{30}conditions:

- Assuming Vs
_{30}values of 600 m/s uniformly distributed throughout the study area. This emulated the presence of a moderately homogenous weathered rock with similar values assumed for the seabed rocks (Figure 13a).

#### 3.3.3. Spatial Correlation Model

_{30}values from microzonation (Figure 12c) and the Montalva et al. (2017) GMPE for three conditions:

- Uncorrelated ground motion fields (Figure 14a);

_{30}, and spatial correlation. The three exposure models formerly presented were addressed as the fourth element within this sensitivity analysis to calculate their seismic vulnerability. These models, along with their fragility functions, were assembled in order to fulfil the data formats required by the Assetmaster and Modelprop software [100]. They produced inputs which, together with the ground motions provided by Shakyground, were used by the DEUS engine [101] to estimate the damage and losses. The replacement cost values suggested in [69] and loss ratios per damage state (i.e., 2%, 10%, 50%, and 100%) were used. Therefore, 81 parametric combinations for risk assessment were generated per ground motion realisation.

## 4. Sensitivity Analyses of Scenario-Based Seismic Risk Assessment

_{30}values, imposed the largest values.

_{30}parametrisations. Moreover, the arrangement of the normalised risk metrics of the preliminary downscaled model (Figure 15b) presented a smoother shape in contrast with the other two exposure models. This feature was a contribution of having a more spread-out aggregation (Figure 7) made of an unrealistic portfolio composition (e.g., very few walled, high-rise, reinforced concrete buildings). Finally, the Bayesian-derived exposure model (Figure 15c) produced the highest estimated losses due to its comparative larger building counts. It might appear that the difference in these counts induced a linear increment of the losses with respect to the preliminary exposure model. However, this trend was not entirely linear. This was due to the different spatial distributions of the buildings (Figure 10) and having larger proportions of walled medium-rise RC buildings (Figure 11) which, despite being more resistant to ground shaking (Figure 4) have higher replacement costs (Table 1).

That area value was within the type of low-rise buildings, which was the value selected for such a category. Therefore, the chosen percentages for all of the observed buildings were the ones for which the likelihood function was maximised, as defined by Equation (A10).

**Figure 2.**Flowchart outlining the input data gathered, the processes, and the three resulting residential building exposure models for Valparaíso (Chile) we will be presenting throughout this study. These exposure models, together with the parametric ground motions, are used as inputs for the sensitivity analysis in scenario-based seismic risk in the last stage of this study.

**Figure 3.**Building counts at the commune level for 15 SARA building classes (after having combined similar typologies (Section 3.2.1)). The colour scale represents the material type (green = wooden; orange = masonry; blue = reinforced concrete).

**Figure 5.**Inferred ranges of residential building counts in the study area. This outcome was obtained from the spatial disaggregation of nighttime residents at the block level as reported by the official 2017 Chilean census.

**Figure 6.**Spatial distributions of the building counts for the six subcategories in the range A–F obtained from the preliminary model. The latter involves a simple downscaling using the dasymetric disaggregation of the population based on the use of nighttime residents at the block level as reported by the official 2017 Chilean census.

**Figure 7.**Spatial distributions of the building counts for the SARA typologies obtained from the preliminary downscaled model. The colour scale reflects the material type (green = wooden; orange = masonry; blue = reinforced concrete).

**Table 1.**SARA building classes proposed for the study area along with short descriptions. Average number of dwellings (Dwel./bdg), nighttime residents (Res./bdg), and replacement cost (Repl. Cost (USD)) are reported as in [67] and in https://sara.openquake.org/ (accessed date: 21 December 2021). Average footprint area (Ft./bdg. m

^{2}) values are derived from the construction quality categories per dwelling as suggested in [67] as well as the mean range of storeys and dwellings per class (see Table A1). A new typology in the range A–F is proposed in terms of the similarities of their footprint areas.
