Recommended Postearthquake Evaluation and Repair Criteria for Welded Steel Moment-Frame Buildings
This report provides recommendations for performing inspections to detect damage in steel
moment-frame buildings following an earthquake; evaluating the damaged buildings’ safety in
a postearthquake environment; and repairing damaged buildings. Chapters cover inspection
and classification of damage; preliminary postearthquake assessment; detailed postearthquake
evaluations; and postearthquake repair. The appendices include procedures for performance
evaluation; sample placards that may be used to post buildings following preliminary
postearthquake evaluations; and sample inspection forms that may be used to record damage
detected in beam-column connections as part of a detailed postearthquake inspection program.
