Abstract

Meinong Earthquake struck southern Taiwan in the early morning of February 6, 2016. Two years later, a major earthquake occurred in Hualien area in the midnight of Feruary 6, 2018. Several mid- to high-rise buildings were collapsed after those two earthquakes. Some of those collapsed buildings cause severely caught. Investigation for damage of mid- to high-rise buildings in the Meinong and Hualien Earthquake is provided in this paper. Moreover, response strategies included government policy and corresponded seismic assessment technologies are also provided in this paper. Mid- to high-rise buildings, of at least seven stories high and composed of several units, are often lined up in a row along the street. Those mid- to high-rise buildings, which were constructed before 1999, were investigated in the first-stage evaluation after the earthquake. The mid- to high-rise building reconnaissance includes commercial/residential buildings and residential buildings. These mid to high-rise building damage modes can be summarized as follows: presence of soft and weak first story, lack of redundancy, and lack of lateral reinforcement. The reconnaissance results of three representative mid- to high-rise buildings during the earthquake are introduced in this paper.
