While there is no threat of a tsunami to the Australian mainland, there is a reasonable possibility that an earthquake will take place in the near future and take away many structures and lives. Earthquake has always been common. Over the years, engineers have come to realise one thing with increasing certainty: Earthquakes don’t kill people, buildings do.
Here, we give some disaster-proof house design tips to help you in designing and making your home more resistant to damage from man-made and natural disasters.
Earthquakes can occur at random times of the year with almost no signs. They can destroy cities and affect rural areas. Even worse, they can take lives.
Because experts cannot predict when earthquakes will happen, they decided to do something to at least prevent the damage that they bring. In cooperation with emergency management agencies, they introduce practices and impose regulations in building earthquake resistant structures.
Now, aside from the materials used, what makes these earthquake resistant structures durable and stable during natural calamities? Let’s take a look at 5 characteristics of an earthquake resistant structure design below:
