This paper presents two possible construction methods that could be adopted in the Wenchuan post-earthquake reconstruction. One is the composite tubular construction and the other is FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) retrofitting technology. The background of these two methods, the existing research and relevance to Whenchuan post-earthquake reconstruction are described.
