How Today’s Civil Engineering Protect Us from Earthquakes
The devastating impact of past major earthquakes, that caused thousands of fatalities and billions of dollars in property loss, have proven the need for the improvement of buildings, bridges and highways in cities. Modern technology has now allowed engineers to construct earthquake resistant structures that are able to resist strong seismic waves. Here’s how today’s civil engineering protect us from the next big quake. See also The Science of Earthquakes.
