Suggest Your Seismic Solutions

Posted March 30, 2011 8:37 AM

It's impossible to ignore the events transpiring around the world, particularly the seismic rumblings and nuclear issues in the Pacific Ring of Fire. While the loss of human lives is tragic and loss of property mind-numbing, it's important that we remember that these are natural events that we cannot control. What we can control are building codes, methods, and procedures for minimizing damage to disaster prone areas.

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Shock, Vibration & Noise, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Shock, Vibration & Noise today.

What, me worry? If the earth moves for me, I hope it moves for you too; then everybody's happy.

Knowing this is Japan, i can well believe it.

Nothing to do with the thread...just a warm feeling for those wonderful people. God bless them.

Seems to me the OP is totally rhetorical in engineering terms.

You can't 'out engineer' the forces of nature.

But;

What best resists damage is reasonably known.

Where things occur is reasonably well known.

So;

That people ignore this, or obfuscate on the inevitable, is a sociopolitical discussion.
