Seismic Behavior Analysis and Earthquake Damage Prediction of Buildings in Langfang


Article Preview

Ascertaining existing buildings of seismic capacity deficiency is the precondition of strengthening them, which is very important to reduce earthquake disaster in the future. So it is necessary to predict the seismic damage of buildings. This article is the results of earthquake disaster prediction in urban area of Langfang, which is expected to provide a theoretical basis for the buildings in Langfang to defense the earthquake disaster.
