Steering Committee on Steel-Concrete Composite Structure (SCCS), Architectural Institute of Japan, conducted a survey on the damage of Steel Reinforced Concrete (SRC) buildings in Sendai City. The SRC buildings suffered damage to nonstructural members in principle and little damage was observed in structural members. However, some buildings designed by old seismic design codes suffered severe damage to structural members. But they are not such serious damage as story collapse at the middle story of SRC buildings, which were found after the 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake. This chapter briefly describes damage to four SRC buildings which showed distinct types of damage.
