Deformation of Reinforced Concrete Building and Damage of Expansion Joint during the 2001 Geiyo Earthquake
the 2001 Geiyo Earthquake
damage of expansion joint
deformation of reinforced concrete building subjected earthquake
Many reinforced concrete school buildings in the big earthquake acceleration observation area suffered contact or collision damage of expansion joint during the 2001 Geiyo Earthquake. With a purpose of finding the appropriate clearance of expansion joint for reinforced concrete building, the clearances of expansion joint for the school buildings which suffered collision damage during the 2001 Geiyo Earthquake were investigated. From the clearances of expansion joint which suffered damage, the deformation of reinforced concrete building subjected earthquake is examined. So we conducted the questionnaire survey to the elementary school of Hiroshima Prefecture southern part about the existence of expansion joint and the damage of school buildings by the earthquake.
