Paper Title:
Investigation on Earthquake-Induced Buildings Decoration and Indoor/Outdoor Properties Losses in Urban Zones of Wenchuan Ms8.0 Great Earthquake and Study on Decoration Damage Loss Ratio
  Abstract

A great earthquake of magnitude 8.0 occurred on May 12, 2008 (Beijing Time) in Wenchuan, Sichuan Province of China, caused huge casualties and economic losses. As a member of field investigation team of China Earthquake Administration (CEA), the decoration and indoor/outdoor properties losses of the earthquake-stricken areas were investigated in detail, which include Dujiangyan, Mianyang, Deyang, Chengdu, Guangyuan city, and other areas. In this paper, based on statistical analysis of collected survey data, the investigation results and characteristics of buildings decoration and indoor/outdoor properties losses of the earthquake-stricken areas are given firstly. Then, the relationship between decoration damage grade and main body structure damage grade is analyzed, and loss ratio of building decoration damage in urban zones is also provided on the basis of expert questionnaires. Thus, some foundations are established for loss assessment method of building decoration damage in urban zones.
