Antonios Pomonis
Damage Scale
MSK 1976 Scale (Medvedev, 1977)

Notes (from EEFIT): central business district of Kobe City, where a large number of mid and high-rise commercial structures of reinforced concrete (RC), steel-reinforced concrete composite (SRC) and steel construction are concentrated

Notes (from A. Pomonis, author of the EEFIT report), The Sannomiya survey has not addressed the damage level of each photographsed building, but only analyzed the situation of the collapsed buildings, due to lack of time/budget at the time. For the Sannomiya survey it may be worth digitizing the slides and tak another look at it if budget is available

Actual data in this study is lifted from the excel spreadsheet provided by A. Pomonis.
