Behavior of Structures Retrofitted with Diagonal Steel Bracings During the 1985 Mexico City Earthquake
A strong earthquake affects many structures, possibly leaving them in a weakened condition from the stability point of view. The first decision to be made is whether a building can be repaired or must be demolished; this decision depends on the type of damage, on the feasibility and cost of the repair work and on the confidence of the owner that the building will be safe once it is repaired.
