Current building design codes allow the appearance of structural and nonstructural damage under design basis earthquakes. The research regarding probabilistic seismic loss estimation in domestic building structure is urgent. The evaluation in this paper is based on a 11-story reinforced concrete office building, incremental dynamic analysis (IDA) is conducted in Perform 3D program using models capable to simulate all possible limit states up to collapse. Next, the probability distribution of post-earthquake casualties, rebuild costs repair costs and business downtime loss are calculated in PACT software for the studied building considering the modified component vulnerability groups and population flow models. The evaluation procedure can also shed light on other types of buildings in China. For non-typical functional building structures, this article proposes to build a finite element model of structural components and to classify the vulnerability groups based on the construction drawings, and to supply and improve the vulnerability library of appendages in FEMA P-58 according to the actual situation. In this way, the application scope of building seismic performance evaluation can be expanded.
