CFS vs the world’s largest outdoor shake table

Posted by FRAMECAD Team on Nov 2, 2017 11:03:00 AM

It is well established that not only is cold formed steel much lighter and more elastic than traditional materials like concrete and masonry, it also absorbs energy better by dissipating the force of seismic activity.

To test exactly how well CFS structures are capable of withstanding earthquakes and the fires that often follow them, in June 2016 a team of engineers from the University of San Diego in California constructed a six-storey CFS building.

And, they built it on top of the world’s largest outdoor seismic shake table!

Most interestingly, this was the tallest ever CFS structure to undergo tests on a shake table.

Earthquakes don’t kill, poorly designed and constructed buildings do

Posted by FRAMECAD on Oct 19, 2017 11:03:00 AM

When an earthquake strikes, poorly designed and constructed buildings are a major contributing factor to the eventual size and scope of the catastrophe. In many ways, it can be said that it’s not earthquakes that cause human injury and loss of life, but rather it’s buildings that are designed and built with poor strength and resilience.

In this post, we’re going to explore how the best way to save lives in areas of high seismic activity is in fact to design structures that can withstand serious shakes, with the ideal solution being a Cold Formed Steel construction method.
