Nowadays, engineers have managed to design windows and walls that will stand after an intense motion from an earthquakes. Researchers have lift up the drift capacity of the window frame into another level through installing glass panels that has no direct contact with the corner of the frame. This will produce a gap between the walls and frame that will let it to move when the two structures connected by reinforced ‘fuses’.
Today, we live in such dynamic world with unpredicted natural calamities like earthquakes present more and more destruction. Remember what just happened in Indonesia and Samoa Islands? We can see painful result of the staggering magnitudes of the earthquakes with millions of physical loss and such enormous emotional stress. We all know that there is still nothing we can do to prevent such calamities yet we can have certain measurements to minimize the possible damages. You can find some novel concepts from designers which could be useful eventually below.
This earthquake resistant house with ‘Ordos 100’ feature was designed by HHF architects in China. Every floor slab in this house is separately supported by a concrete and an outside wall. The concrete stairway walls also play the role as supporting walls making the house earthquake proof.
Expanded polystyrene foam or Styrofoam is the only material that builds these igloo shaped house. This material is just perfect for earthquake and typhoon proof homes since it does not rust, rot or even attract termites. These are found in Japan and were built by Japan Dome House, and Unites States has made an adaptation of the same homes.
These houses are situated in USA and designed by Solaleya and is perfectly christened ‘Rotating UFO Homes’. They can be rotated using the same amount of energy that a vacuum cleaner needs to vacuum the house once. These houses could be exposed t the sunlight at all times, that what makes the solar panels can absorb and use the light in an efficient way. I can simply say these are the perfect examples of Eco-friendly living that has the resistant capacity to face hurricanes and earthquakes since they are made with wood and cork-insulated.
