Earthquake simulation experiment to take place

Very nice!! Never heard of such simulations before except in an Ad where they test the Hummer for difft terrains using physical simulation!!

==========
AHMEDABAD: An earthquake is expected to hit some houses on April 13. Don't panic. It is just an earthquake simulation to be carried out by National Centre for Peoples'-Action in Disaster Preparedness (NCPDP) as part of its shock table experiment at Nirma University. The experiment, the second of its kind, is being carried out to test earthquake resistant technologies and creating awareness about the same among people, specially those who live in villages.

An earthquake will be simulated to see its impact on specially constructed models of houses built on a table. There will be two such models constructed on the table, of which one is made the way people commonly build houses in rural areas, and the other with some improvements that would enhance seismic resistance of that model.

The experiment at NU will be done under the guidance of K S Jagdish, professor emeritus of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and NCPDP director Rajendra Desai.

In the experiment, the table will be given shocks which will gradually be increased in intensity using a 2 metre high pendulum until the models begin to show cracks. A detailed study would be conducted at the same time using sophisticated equipment which will record acceleration experienced by the structure giving more insight about performance. The experiment will be held from 9 to 12 am and will be open for people apart from students of local engineering colleges and masons.

Thumbs up Re: Earthquake simulation experiment to take place

Nice study..

The Japanese have the expertise in building seismic resistant houses & buildings. Northern Japan experiences frequent earthquakes & yet People endure them due to the earthquake resistant technologies used in their constructions...
