Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.

4 Methods to Protect Buildings During Earthquakes

Primarily, horizontal load causes walls, floors, columns, beams, and the elements connecting them to vibrate, and finally leads to the collapse of buildings. Below we present 4 methods that protect building structures during severe earthquakes.

Compelling Reasons for Earthquake-Resistant Construction

Though large earthquakes do not occur frequently, they constitute one of the most devastating and destructive dangers for the built environment. The fact that an ever-growing percentage of the world population is projected to live in urban areas highlights the need for mitigating the risks in earthquake-prone areas. What are the impacts of earthquakes on buildings? And why is earthquake-resistant construction more important than ever?  

The Top 4 Particularly Earthquake-Prone Regions

The risk of earthquakes is extremely unequally distributed because tectonic plates influence each other differently. While conditions are less hazardous directly on the plates, large earthquake-prone areas extend along the fault lines. We present you the Top 4 areas.
