This is the preliminary report on the damage of concrete structures due to the 921 Taiwan Earthquake (Ji Ji Earthquake). Right after the earthquake on 21st September 1999, the Concrete Committee of JSCE decided to send the investigation team under the leadership of Prof. A. Machida to Taiwan. The team left Tokyo on 30th September and had two full days of investigation in Taichung and Nantou counties. During the investigation the team received great help from Prof J.C. Chern and Dr Y.W. Chan, without whom this report could not have been made. The authors would like to express their sincere gratitude to both professors as well as to the JSCE Concrete Committee. Since this is just the preliminary report, the authors welcome any comments or opinions on this report.
