GALLERY: Earthquake Proofing Buildings

Loading...

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 .

Earthquake-resistant structures are structures designed to withstand earthquakes . While no structure can be entirely immune to damage from earthquakes, the goal of earthquake-resistant construction is to erect structures that fare better during seismic activity than their conventional counterparts.
