Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Composite and Mixed Construction


The Japanese standard for seismic capacity evaluation of existing composite steel and reinforced concrete (SRC) buildings was introduced. As it developed, based on the previously established evaluation standards for existing reinforced concrete (RC) buildings, the emphasis was placed on its comparison with RC. As an example, this evaluation method was applied to old buildings, for which some structural testing was performed when they were demolished. The evaluation method was further discussed in the light of the testing.
