The seismic vulnerability of existing masonry buildings is investigated by an expert system prototype. Field inspectors have to provide answers which can be of a Boolean, fuzzy or probabilistic nature. The first step in implementing uncertainty treatment in the expert system prototype is therefore to separate these three possibilities. Some possible improvements are also illustrated.
