Are there any buildings that can withstand earthquakes?
With the seemingly increasing incidence of earthquakes and the ensuing disasters for both people and the environment, I was wondering if there were any buildings that could actually withstand a quake and what might make that possible?
First off i want to say congratulations on having the hub of the day! So i found this on the internet, I hope it answers your question!
"Many engineers and architects now believe it's possible to build an earthquake-proof building -- one that would ride the waves of the most fearsome temblor and remain as good as new once the shaking had stopped. The cost of such a building, however, would be staggering. Instead, construction experts strive for something slightly less ambitious -- earthquake-resistant buildings, which are designed to prevent total collapse and preserve life, as well as construction budgets." Have a great day!
Thanks for the congratulations and thanks for that bit of research.
I'd love yo know what kind of construction materials and techniques are proposed for that totally un-quakeable building. Do you have a reference for where you got that?
