This paper describes observations of damage to reinforced concrete buildings from the September 2010 Darfield (Canterbury) earthquakes. Data was collated from first-hand earthquake reconnaissance observations by the authors, post-earthquake surveys, and communications and meetings with structural engineers in Christchurch. The paper discusses the general performance of several reinforced concrete building classes: pre-1976 low-rise, pre-1976 medium rise, modern low-and mid-rise, modern high-rise, industrial tilt-up buildings, advanced seismic systemsand ground-failure induced damaged and retrofitted RC buildings. Preliminary lessons are highlighted and discussed. In general, reinforced concrete buildings behaved well and as expected, given the intensity of this event.

Abstract

This paper describes observations of damage to reinforced concrete buildings from the September 2010 Darfield (Canterbury) earthquakes. Data was collated from first-hand earthquake reconnaissance observations by the authors, post-earthquake surveys, and communications and meetings with structural engineers in Christchurch. The paper discusses the general performance of several reinforced concrete building classes: pre-1976 low-rise, pre-1976 medium rise, modern low-and mid-rise, modern high-rise, industrial tilt-up buildings, advanced seismic systemsand ground-failure induced damaged and retrofitted RC buildings. Preliminary lessons are highlighted and discussed. In general, reinforced concrete buildings behaved well and as expected, given the intensity of this event.
