The purpose of this study is to develop a platform tentatively named the Korean Integrated Disaster Evaluation Simulator(K-IDES) to assess building risk during disasters. In this study, the first step is an analysis of FEMA's risk management series in the USA for precedent research. Among them, FEMA IRVS is selected as the case study for the development of the K-IDES framework and through the comparative analysis of domestic building design guides, codes and special acts related to disasters. The next step is to develop a risk assessment methodology to yield quantitative results. This methodology consists of a classification system, calculation methods and grade rating. Based on it, K-IDES will establish a management system that can systematically integrate the collected information by using assessment techniques for elements except legal standards for measuring risk in response to various disasters and present a classification system of evaluation factors/ criteria for evaluation items and risk assessment methods. In the next study, and through the simulation of the selected buildings by using this risk assessment, a check-list will be verified. The final goal of this study is to build a platform to be used as an integrated risk management method against a complex disaster through expansion to other types of buildings through continuous data scaling and management systematization.
