Wenchuan Earthquake - Advances in Structural Engineering

The seismic damage of typical reinforced concrete (RC) frames in Xuankou School during the Great Wenchuan Earthquake in China is introduced. A simulation method for the seismic damage sustained was developed to enable analysis of the damage mechanisms. The simulation makes use of different nonlinear finite element (FE) models, including macro-scale fibre-beam-element models and a micro-macroscale hybrid model.
