Here will be a summary, based on the result, assessment, discussions, and conclusions about the seismic performance precast reinforced concrete structures and analysis of the existing precast reinforced concrete from earthquake resistance. And comparing the cast-in-site concrete structures with precast structure the resistance strength capacity, to recommend the building construction structures in high seismic regions. The assessment of building performance from the past earthquake, there was a lot of failure characteristics which expose the precast reinforced concrete structures. Those technical testing observations have found many faults form the precast structures during the earthquake, moreover, the testing instrument exposes the lack of eurocode8- seismic resistance design code, which was a beam to column connections and walls joints were a very weak design. Moreover, the design of lateral force stiffness and mass were not proportional, and it makes torsional for large displacement between the stiffness of the lateral loads. Due to this fault, some precast structures can be collapsed during an earthquake.
