Reports evaluating the earthquake resistance of existing buildings are organized into four categories: earthquake control guidelines for building installations; seismic diagnosis of reinforced concrete buildings; methods for determining earthquake resistance and earthquake proof designs of pre-existing steel-skeleton construction; and determination of earthquake resistance of buildings such as a gymnasium. Guidelines for applying seismic diagnostic standards are provided. Appendices contain computations of resistance and other data for columns, beams, and connections, and an example of the computation of index V for a gymnasium.
