Research overview:
During an earthquake,a structure including the base and the surrounding ground makes complicated vibratory movements. Two weak steel structures, which are subject to plastic deformation under an ordinary earthquake of 4 to 5 JMM intensity scale, were constructed on the ground to observe the response of the structure to the natural earthquake. The measured data was analyzed to elucidate the mode of the vibratory movement of the structure and the process of the fracture.
