Abstract:
This paper analyzes the authors' experience in repairing reinforced concrete buildings damaged by earthquakes. Buildings damaged by a first earthquake were repairedd and subsequently, those repaired buildings underwent the effects of second and third quakes. In some cases, those new seismic actions caused further damage which also had to be repaired.
