Seismic Rehabilitation for Structures

  • Junbo Jia


Seismic rehabilitation includes all concepts associated with reparation, upgrading, retrofitting, and strengthening. They contribute to a reduction in the vulnerability of structures due to various reasons and motivations, such as a revision of design codes or earthquake damages, etc.
