Construction with porous concrete in earthquake-prone areas


Abstract

The general notion that masonry buildings are less resistant to earthquake action is challenged in the paper. The use of European standards in the design of porous-concrete masonry structures is analyzed, and the application of results obtained by building model testing is considered. It is shown that porous concrete can be used for construction purposes in all earthquake-prone areas in Croatia. Possible number of floors reduces wit the increase of earthquake hazard, which is quite natural and does not hinder the use of construction systems involving porous concrete masonry structures.
