Earthquake Resistant Home Design Idea
Reality shows that the result of a great 8 Richter scale earthquake was devastating. Recently which happened in Chile was a solid prove that now days building should be earthquake resistant. Why is this so? So that you don’t need to pick bricks by bricks and rebuild again. Else than that is to minimize the greatly devastating effect which could cause harm to human. It’s not the earthquake that kills you but it’s your building. With few tips we might be able to guide you on creating a house which won’t fall and will hold your roof. When designing your house you should include structural components such as: shear walls, braced frames, moment resisting frames, diaphragms, and horizontal trusses.
Diaphragm is horizontal resistance element; generally floor and roof, where they transfer the lateral forces between the vertical resistance elements (shear walls or frames). Shear wall is vertical wall which is specifically and specially designed to receive lateral forces from diaphragms and transmit them to the ground. So make sure your house is not only gorgeous but also earthquake resistant home design. Below we provides a several sample and picture of an earthquake proof home design idea from the wood house with its affordable earthquake-proof structures to the earthquake resistant house in China that was designed by HHF architects.
