Application of Earthquake Damage Forecast with PKPM Software on Important Buildings in Xichang
In this paper, important buildings of different structure in Xichang are calculated by using the powerful design software PKPM. First, the drawings of the buildings are simplified and the structure forms are input the computer in PMCAD software interface to make model, and the comprehensive seismic capacity index of floors or the story drift angle are calculated. Then, according to the judging principle, the earthquake damage level is gotten.
