Abstract

As a part of Coordinated Technical Project on the Development of Repair and Strengthening Techniques for Buildings and Structures Damaged by Earthquakes, initiated in 1981 by Ministry of Constructiont Guidelines for Post-Earthquake Inspection and Evaluation of Earthquake Damage in Reinforced Concrete Buildings were developed. This paper describes the Guideline for Emergency Inspection and Evaluation for Hazard Risk of Damaged Buildings toward Aftershocks, which is intended for technical officers of a municipal government to evaluate a risk of damaged buildings immediately after earthquake hazards and to determine safe public buildings for use as places for evacuation and medical treatment. Damages of structural members, possible falling and overturning objects are to be investigated by external observation of a building.
