Advanced earthquake disaster simulation techniques for urban buildings have been introduced in Chaps.  8,  9, and  10 covering the nonlinear multiple degree-of-freedom (MDOF) computational models, the high-fidelity visualization method, and the high-performance computation approach. In this chapter, these techniques are applied to the earthquake disaster simulation of several typical urban areas of different sizes.
