To see how an earthquake brings down buildings in the real world, the American scientists equipped with sensors and "shaker" (vibration machine) huge warehouse in El Centro (CA) and subjected to fierce shake. This was reported in the press release of the University of New York at Buffalo.

"People usually do not allow us to test the strength and destroy these buildings. Very rarely put the devices in buildings and see how they react to shocks, "- said the project manager Andreas Stavridis (Andreas Stavridis).

In November 2014, scientists have equipped a former warehouse beginning of the XX century, a variety of cameras and sensors, as well as vibration installations. Then they began to shake the two-storey building at the resonant frequency.



The building has attracted scientists in their structure, which combines brick and reinforced concrete. Although this type of buildings in the United States banned after the earthquake in 1933 in Long Beach (California), it is still widespread in California, as well as in Latin America, Asia and the Mediterranean.

Although no longer operate the warehouse and found it can not be repaired after the earthquake of 2010, he was much stronger than expected, scientists, and passed all the shakes.

To obtain permission for these tests, Stavridis had to spend more than two years, negotiating with the owners of the building, lawyers, contractors, city and university authorities. But in the end the owner gave his consent, so as an experiment took off his portion of the cost of demolition of dilapidated warehouse.
