Seismic Bank


Earthquake is not a fantasy, but a realistic scenario that can occur at any time, as history has taught us. In a seismogenic region like Greece, it is necessary before we build our dream to build it on “solid foundations” and only by experts.

The Hyogo Seismology Research Center in Kobe, Japan has made a significant contribution to the evolution of construction technology and the impact of earthquakes on them, making them increasingly seismic. The Seismology Research Center is the only center with a 3D full-scale seismic bank. The largest seismic bank in the world, which can simulate high-level ground movements and high-intensity earthquakes.

The following video shows the action of a strong earthquake on a concrete structure (Construction of reinforced concrete) in relation to the action of the earthquake on a metal structure.
