Earthquake damage to masonry buildings.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I come from Malta in the centre of the Mediterrean, where masonry is our
local building material. 
Although Malta is not an active earthquake zone, roughly the return period
for a MM7 earthquake, assumed at 1800 years. The last recorded MM7 occurred
around 1673.
It would be interesting to know regarding the performance of masonry
buildings during earthquakes.
