Eslimy-Isfahany, S.H.R. and Pegels, G. (2006) Seismic-proof housing: reconstruction in rural areas In: Third International I-Rec Conference, Post-disaster reconstruction: Meeting stakeholder interests, 17-19 May 2006, Florence, Italy.Full text not available from this repository.
A robust solution for typical problems of developing countries is proposed here. It consists of a complete and coherent set of technical and organisational measures combined with provisions of technology transfer. The design system for individual housing is adapted to the socio-cultural acceptance, which ensures earthquake safety by a lightweight steel-framed body supported on an innovative base-isolation system. Earthquake-resistant design of low rise buildings; seismic isolated structures; structural rehabilitation, strengthening and retrofit of existing buildings and sustainable construction materials are of particular interest.
