      8 Ways to Make Earthquake Resilient Low Cost Houses

      Retrofitting: Steel jacketing

      Retrofitting refers to the strengthening of existing structures to make them more resistant to seismic activity, ground motion or soil failure due to earthquake. Jacketing is one of the methods of retrofitting buildings which includes reinforced concrete jacketing and steel jacketing. Steel Jacketing refers to encasing of column and beam with steel plates.

      Prefab Housing

      Prefabs are special type of building component which are manufactured off-site, usually in standard sections that can easily be transported and assembled. Light weight prefab house could be built as both temporary and permanent structures which has high sound and thermal insulation capacity and is fire and moisture resistant.

      Demonstration of Base Isolation

      Friction Damper and Viscous Damper

      Damping is the ability of the structural system to dissipate the energy of earthquake ground shaking. The more damping ability a building possesses, the sooner it will stop vibrating. These seismic dampers are fixed in place of structural elements as diagonal braces. They absorb a part of seismic energy when it is transmitted through them.

      Demonstration of effect of shape and stiffness of the building

      Shape and stiffness of the building governs its response against the earthquake. This model attempts to demonstrate the correct and faulty methods of design and construction of buildings.

      Using Lead Rubber Bearing (LRB) in base isolation system building

      LRB lead rubber bearings work on the principle of base isolation and limit the energy transferred from the ground to the structure in the event of an earthquake. The rubber and steel laminated bearing is designed to support the weight of the structure and to provide post-yield elasticity. The rubber provides the isolation and re-centering of the bearing after a seismic event. The lead core deforms plastically under shear deformations, while dissipating energy through heat.

      Base Isolation System

      Base Isolation is one of the most effective means of protecting structures against earthquake forces. Base isolation is one of the most widely accepted seismic protection systems in earthquake prone areas. It mitigates the effect of an earthquake by essentially isolating the structure from potentially dangerous ground motions. Seismic isolation is a design strategy, which uncouples the structure for the damaging effects of the ground motion. The term isolation refers to reduced interaction between structure and the ground. When the seismic isolation system is located under the structure, it is referred as “base isolation”. This technology can be used for both structural design and seismic retrofit.
