QUICK ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES FOR TWO STORIES BUILDING BASED ON NUMERICAL SIMULATION RESULTS
Keywords:Earthquake, Quick assessment, Non-engineered two-story building, Indonesian code
Quick assessment is one of an important step in emergency response following an earthquake. This step is mainly purposed to estimate the financial lost based on the building damage criteria. The result of a quick assessment is also needed to determine whether the damaged building can be repaired and reused or not. There are three damage levels which are classified based on the building conditions after the earthquake. Based on the experience, there is a time constraint in conducting the building assessment. Then a quickcorrect method is very important to accomplish the task in the limited time. Base on the series of numerical simulation, the quick assessment procedure is proposed in this study. The structural elements that need to be checked in the quick assessment are including column, beam, plate, and foundation. The numerical result was conducted for some two stories buildings with minimum reinforcement on those structural members. The minimum reinforcement requirements are base on Indonesia code SNI-1736-2012. The critical point of every structural component to be checked, especially columns, is discussed here.
