Lessons from the Collapse of Typical RC Frames in Xuankou School During the Great Wenchuan Earthquake

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.
