Online Database of Concrete Buildings Damaged in Earthquakes

The Concrete Coalition Database features case studies of over 50 buildings in 12 countries, an intuitive user interface, and extensive search criteria. Each case study includes summary information, photos, sketches, drawings, and information on retrofits. The Database also identifies over 50 design and construction characteristics that may have contributed to the observed damage. Start exploring the Concrete Coalition Database. The Concrete Coalition, a project of EERI, is a network of individuals and organizations that works to understand the risk associated with non-ductile concrete buildings.
