||School buildings in Taiwan are insufficient for earthquake resistance ability, because
there are too many buildings in school, we must sift all the buildings out comprehensively to
narrow the range. We decrease earthquake disasters by mending from week to health.
Preliminary seismic evaluation method is one of procedure to sift school buildings out,
and it is simple and objective. The method must investigate many properties and situations,
including its’ locations, purposes, conditions, and sizes. Based on the data we can calculate
the structure capacity and demand, then give them a grade.
This paper compiles statistic and analysis the data from NCREE school building data
bank. There are 47.3% truly anxiety, 18.3% slightly anxiety, and 34.4% is safe. the typical
buildings is week then untypical one. Because the typical buildings have rare walls along the
hallway becoming a week axis, the untypical buildings have bidirectional walls, so the
untypical buiding capacity is better then typical one. The CDR(capacity demand ratio) of
untypical building is usually 1.5 times CDR of typical one. One floor school buildings’
average is highest of seismic index, three and four floors school buildings are lowest. The
results are Ministry of Education policy decisions and funding allocation. When earthquake
comes, reduce losing of lifes.
NCREE preceded a series of in-situ pushover experiment for school buildings. From
2005 to 2007, several school field tests include Sin-Chen junior high school, Kou-Hu
elementary school, Rei-pu elementary school, Guan-Miau elementary school performed by
A method of seismic evaluation for existing buildings needs to be confirmed. This article
based on CDR to find the seismic index for comparing three cases including PE, ETABS, and
