seismic Topic


Seismic activity causes ground shaking (pushing back and forth, sideways, and up and down) that generates internal forces within buildings called inertial force, which in turn causes most seismic damage. Lateral forces are considered to be those where movement is caused by applied pressure or force acting parallel to the ground, such as wind, but may occur at other angles than perfectly horizontal.
