This week, most of what I worked on was on the unreinforced masonry building damage in the Canterbury earthquakes. As I said in an earlier post, I've been collecting data on the amount of volume loss and debris produced by unreinforced masonry buildings in the earthquakes.

I've also been analyzing the type of damage in each building. For example, in the building above there were multiple gable wall failures where the stones fell out of the gables. This data is going to be compiled in order to find out how risky URM buildings are to occupants and pedestrians.

I sometimes find this work to be dull, but I do think it's interesting to figure out different trends in the data based on the building's height or location with respect to the earthquake's ground motion. I am excited to see what will come out of the data that I have been collecting.
