Murat - For the Repair of Damaged Buildings, try FEMA's Publication number 308 "Repair of Earthquake-Damaged Concrete Buildings" which is available for free by dialing in the U.S. 1-800-480-2520. For more information for if you need a regular-mail address if you are out of the country go to
In the U.S. we have an Appendix Chapter 34, Division III in our 1997 Uniform Building Code titled "Repairs to Buildings and Structures Damaged by the Occurance of a Natural Disaster." You can obtain a copy from the publisher at
If we can be of any help to you, feel free to ask more specific questions. Would you prefer to have something mailed to you?
