Abstract

We reported the results of a structural survey of one traditional townhouse in Furumachi, Kumamoto City, which was not largely damaged by the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake. In addition, considering the effect of continuous columns by simple models, we performed the time history response analysis with the seismic observation, and examined the difference in the maximum response drift angle with and without consideration of continuous columns. From the above, it can be inferred that one of the reasons why the house did not collapse in the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake was that the continuous columns worked as a load bearing element.
