A research project into the seismic performance of fabricated steel may lead to lower costs and potentially a change in the standard.
HERA IS FACILITATING seismic research in metals, providing confidence that New Zealand-fabricated steel products are a very safe building material choice for our seismic environment. Many seismic research projects are under way.
The article includes:
- Welding – a key project
- The performance of steel buildings in quakes
- Standard likely to be revised
