This is a recorded webinar from March 1, 2016.

ACI Committee 133, Disaster Reconnaissance, was created to learn from disasters affecting reinforced concrete structures. Its first reconnaissance mission took place in Kathmandu, Nepal, after the earthquake of April 25, 2015. The work documented the response of low-rise and high-rise reinforced concrete buildings. Low-rise buildings had non-engineered structural frames, masonry clay brick partition walls, and fewer than seven stories. High-rise buildings had seven or more stories, engineered structural frames and walls, and masonry clay brick partition walls. This webinar explains the data collected, how to access the data, initial conclusions they support, and how this information can improve earthquake engineering in the United States and globally.
