With each passing day, catastrophe risk for urban regions of the world is increasing. One of these catastrophes is the earthquake and recent events in Northridge and Kobe were typical examples of what can happen when a major earthquake strikes directly under a densely populated area. Mega cities created by the rapid urbanization and development in unsafe areas led to far greater losses experienced in the past. In order to reduce the property losses after an earthquake a quick repair process is a major task. This process must be based on detailed plans for rebuilding or strengthening procedures of the buildings. The major damage loss is caused by earthquakes.
