Be sure to get a copy of ATC 20-1, “Field Manual:  Post Earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings”.  There is also a FEMA document called “Evaluation of Earthquake Damaged Concrete and Masonry Wall Buildings” (FEMA 307) that you could probably find from their site for free download.

Subject: Haiti trip -


Hello list - I'm making a trip to Haiti shortly to look at some damaged concrete buildings - traveling for a philanthropic group that has facilities nearby.  I've been searching for articles and resources for evaluating damaged 'shear walls' (in quotes because I'm sure they weren't designed as such),  columns and slabs.

If anyone knows of good, practical articles, or has personal experience, could you please share.

thank you,
