The probabilistic models to assess seismic hazard and seismic risk incorporated into the codes CRISIS2015 & USERISK2015, respectively, are applied to compute the seismic risk of buildings of Barcelona. The main procedures required to assess the seismic risk using these codes are briefly described in the present document. A new version of USERISK, which is being developed in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center was used in the present work. According to the results, the levels of seismic risk of the Eixample District of Barcelona are important due mainly to the high levels of seismic vulnerability of its buildings.
