Technical textiles to the help of earthquake prone areas

Jul '09
Since ages, earthquakes have played havoc as and when they have occurred across the globe, particularly in Japan and Italy, bringing devastation to buildings and in the process taking a number of lives too.

The answer to this destruction is an application from technical textiles called carbon-fibre and glass fibre. Buildings built from these fibres have the resistance to withstand earth quakes of even, high intensity.

The pillars of a building are the most important portion that can withstand an earthquake. Pillars can be reinforced using carbon or glass fibres, which are flexible and can adapt themselves to the geometry of the structure.

These pillars can also be impregnated with sensors which when, they detect even a light movement in the soil, will be able to send a warning, which can help in saving a number of lives, when an earthquake takes place.

A lot of research is being undertaken on the subject by different institutes who are trying to determine the correct usage of technical textiles, which can correctly withstand the intensity of an earthquake.
