Seismic assessment of important existing structures that are designed according to prior seismic codes or even without considering any earthquake load is one of the most important issues for minimizing seismic vulnerability. Within this paper the seismic assessment of an existing building for radioactive waste management is presented. By means of dynamic measurements followed by finite element analysis seismic vulnerability assessment was carried out. The application uses a mobile vibration generator for forced vibration testing and offers the possibility of measuring and assessing the structure as well the soil conditions with accurate boundary conditions. By means of forced vibration tests an adequate frequency range and vibration level could be induced in the structure and surrounding soil surface. The advantages of forced excitation are the short test duration, the good controllability and the favourable signal to noise ratio. The benefits of using field testing and an overview about new developments will be given.
