Buildings with “rocking” technology would be more earthquake-resilient, finds CWRU civil engineering professor

Buildings that rock during an earthquake and return to plumb would withstand seismic shaking better than structural designs commonly used in vulnerable zones of California and elsewhere, a Case Western Reserve University researcher has found.
 
Those buildings would also be more easily and cheaply repaired and put back into use more quickly, said Michael Pollino, an assistant civil engineering professor at the Case School of Engineering.
