Slide3

The Beijing National Stadium, China

To earthquake-proof the stadium, the bowl and roof were split into two separate elements and the bowl split into eight zones, each with its own stability system and effectively its own building.

Slide4

Kobe Port Tower

It is shaped like a traditional Japanese drum and was designed to withstand earthquakes, which it did during the 1995 Kobe Earthquake. The rest of the port area was badly affected.

Slide5

CentrePort Building, Wellington, New Zealand

In the event of an earthquake, the three piers can move independently of one another without destroying the bridges, which link the piers together

Slide6

Rubber bearings

Dampers can be added that will allow the building to stay still while they move from side to side.Rubber bearings animation

Slide7

A theoretical design!

It is made stronger by the cross bracing of the walls, the strong core of the building and walls made out of reinforced concrete. There are also shock absorbers in the base of the building. The moat is to allow the building to sway.

Slide8

Another design!

Slide9

Other things that can be done

Windows made from shatter proof glass

Bookselves screwed to wall

Heavy objects attached tables and walls

Earthquake kit

Pictures screwed to walls rather than hung on nails

Slide10

Your task

Draw your design for an earthquake proof building

Add detailed labels that show

why

it is earthquake proof

Describe what materials you would use to build it e.g. reinforced concrete, shatterproof glass

Explain what things you would do inside the building to make it safer in earthquakes
