Consideration of Improving Earthquake Resistant Capacity of Earth Buildings
Earth building is one kind of residential buildings with typical characteristics of materials used locally, natural existence, reasonable construction and low cost in Hanzhong country, and it includes wisdom of working people, and contains plentiful ecological concept, previous architecture experience. The major defect is its low anti-seismic performance, suggestions improving the earthquake resistant capacity of raw-soil structures are put forward from the aspects of enhancing strength and connection, and the preferences for the socialist new rural construction after seismic disasters are provided in the end.
