Seminar of the Technical Chamber of Cyprus, Nicosia
June 2, 2001

In our earthquake resistant design our aim is to improve the mechanic behavior of the structure. This improvement mainly concerns three areas:
    – Reduction of total deformations (elastic and mainly inelastic)
    – Reduction of the inertial forces that develop in the structure during the earthquake
    – Absorption of energy by plastic deformation (or damping in general) without risk of failure of the members of the structure
