Paper Title:
Seismic Damage Analysis of Factory Buildings in 2008 Wenchuan Earthquake
  Abstract

Based on the damage field survey of the industrial building in Wenchuan earthquake, the typical building seismic damage characteristics of industrial structures were summarized and analyzed. According to the damage phenomenon, the following conclusions are derived: usually, the main structures of industrial buildings received serious damage, which roof system were distorted and collapse, bent-frame column were pressed and yielded, bracing system were tension broken or pressed and yielded; when the main structures of industrial building received minor damage, the non-structural member regular suffered relatively damage, include the end bays in the longitudinal direction, high gables, the cantilevered walls between two span with different height and the foundation. Then damage rules and reasons are summed up and damage characteristics and the corresponding design and retrofitting suggestion are proposed. At the end of the paper, it was indicated that seismic design of major structure and non-structural members of factory building must be fully complied with the Seismic Design Code, seismic assessment and seismic strengthening should be carried out at regular intervals for the existed industrial building, which served a long time and whose fortification level is unsatisfied with requirement.
