Carbon tape FibARM (Composite): The second phase of testing for earthquake resistance

Specialists Institute of Defense Emergency summed up the second phase of tests on seismic stability of fragments of brick buildings, and to enhance the external reinforcement using carbon strips FibARM.

According to the study artificial earthquake of 9 points did not cause any harm to the model enhanced carbon materials.

In mid-August, the results of the tests were carried out on the seismic stability of the fragments of brick buildings: the conventional and enhanced The reinforcement system of carbon ribbons FibARM. The technology is developed Holding company "Composite". It is designed to enhance the buildings and structures,

Russian scientists have created a model for the calculation of seismic hazard

In Russia it is the first model of this kind, which can be used to predict the effects of earthquakes in specific areas of the city.

Scientists from the Center for Geophysical Research Vladikavkaz Scientific Centre RAS-based REC "Geoengineering" looking for answers to questions about what will be the nature and extent of the devastation caused by the earthquake in a particular area

What factors influence the effects of the earthquake? This question is posed to science every time when assessing the devastation provoked by a powerful shift of the crust. Thus, the Niigata earthquake in Japan in
