RE: Wood building withstands major-earthquake shake test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Robert,

 

Am I missing something?  I only saw time-lapse photography of the construction (which I further time-lapsed with my mouse), but no testing.  I want to see what happens after it goes on the shake table!

 

 

regards,

Gordon Goodell

Alta, WY

Here is a link to a video showing a 6 story wood structure undergoing a shake table test with seismic loading greater than the Northridge earthquake by 1.8 times, and easily surviving.  Enjoy.
