Is your house earthquake-proof?

Find out how real structures are tested using a Reaction Wall to assess how they would behave during an earthquake.

These full-scale experiments provide a precise insight at what would occur to a given structure during an earthquake without the need to wait for it to happen. These tests help scientists to improve numerical models, design new solutions for the future and contribute to European guidelines and standards for the construction sector.
