Abstract


In this paper, according to survey damage to historic building in Meinong earthquake, five damage models for Chinese temple, the state temple of the Martial God are proposed. These temples were built during 1600s. These five damage models are separation of column from wall (M1), roof damage (M3) wall cracks (M5), surface peeling (M6), and Tilt column (M8). Taiwan free field strong earthquake network is used to analyze seismic data from three free field stations. These stations are close to the state temple of the Martial God. Due to forward directivity effect, the stations’ maximum ground acceleration amplitude is dependent of distance between epicenter and station. Modal analysis using finite element method (FEM) is used to detect weak positions of Martial God temple. Weak positions of numerical results are close to site failure positions of Martial God temple.
