EERI new database of RC buildings damaged by earthquakes

The new EERI database is an excellent and very educational colllection of seismically induced damage of reinforced concrete buildings. It contains over 50 case studies on concrete buildings damaged in over 20 earthquakes. Each case study provides detailed information about the building and photographs of damage. The information presented has been extracted from references and discussions with mentors. The database is presented as a baseline for further research and should not be construed as definitive analysis. Images in the database are taken from references, online reports, EERI photo collections, and individual mentors. For more information about this database, visit http://db.concretecoalition.org/

A similar initiative for Greek earthquakes is available here: http://asptetk.civil.auth.gr/Pages/DataForm.aspx
