This paper applied the seismic evaluation method of the Japanese Standard on several recently constructed CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit) dominant buildings in Afghanistan. The obtained seismic indices, IS, are compared with the maximum inter-story drifts of buildings calculated by Capacity Spectrum Method based on nonlinear static pushover analysis using STERA-3D software. As the result, an efficient and practical seismic evaluation method using a new seismic index is proposed for Afghanistan CMU buildings. Also, the paper recommends the CMU as an alternative for brick masonry in case of low-rise structures.
