Seismic Strengthening of Primary and Secondary Schools in the Region of High Seismic Intensity
An important issue our engineers and technicians met is that how to do safe identification and earthquake resistant strengthening of the primary and secondary school buildings after WenChuan earthquake. The paper reviewed entirely the quality detection, identification and strengthening design of the primary and secondary school buildings in Xi'an. In this paper, the influences of the construction progress, complexity and construction period are all taken into account in order to choose the corresponding seismic strengthening method which are based on the seismic qualification and on-the-spot survey. Problems existed in project design are presented in this paper, which can be taken for example on similar engineering.
