The earthquake damages exist frequently and suffer great losses in our country. The Tangshan earthquake in 1976 and the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, the collapse of masonry buildings caused people great casualties and property losses. The major stress components of multilayer masonry buildings are blockworks, the ring beam and constructional column strengthen the whole anti-seismic property. The brick masonry structure is still a main structural form in civil structures, especially in towns and small-medium cities. This paper summarized the factors from earthquake sites which influenced the anti-seismic property of brick masonry structures, then, based on the resistance and suffering ratio formula of reduction, we simplified the major five influenced factors.
