BUENDIA SANCHEZ, Luis Manuel  and  REINOSO ANGULO, Eduardo. Analysis of damages in housing and commercial buildings during the occurrence of the earthquake of september 19, 2017. Ing. sísm [online]. 2019, n.101, pp.19-35.  Epub Apr 30, 2020. ISSN 0185-092X.

An analysis of the structural damage presented during the September 19, 2017 earthquake in Puebla, Morelos, state of Mexico and Mexico City is presented. The analysis has been carried out by studying different collected data from several sources (such as technical reports, technical visits and social networks, among others). By using the collected data, it was possible to create databases associated to each different city and, subsequently, through a detailed analysis it was possible to develop a geographic information system (GIS), where additional data such as structural characteristics and performance modifiers were included. Statistical analysis in terms of many parameters related with structural damage are presented.

Keywords : Earthquake, September 2017; structural damage; damage statistics; damage database; GIS.
