In terms of the results of in-site investigation of Wenchuan earthquake which occurred on 12 May,2008,the seismic damage of school masonry structural buildings is presented and summarized.The damage of masonry structures is basically clarified as damage of the principal structure,destruction of some local parts of a building as well as the damage of non-structural elements.Additionally,as the damage degree of the principal structure is concerned,it is further divided into 3 levels of damage,i.e.,collapse of the total structure,heavy damage but not collapse and the moderate damage.The major causes resulting in different damage degrees of the masonry structures are commonly attributed to the following reasons: different seismic intensity where the structure exists;whether the building is designed or constructed to meet the requirements of seismic fortification;and whether the building has a multi-fortification system.Finally,for the school masonry buildings,it is suggested to take some measures,such as the regular architecture and structure design,multi-fortification system,to devate the seismic fortification level.
