The effect of earthquake on buildings in Japan
The country of Japan is an island. The population in Japan is considered quite high, about 127,817,277 people in this small country. Therefore, this has made Japan became one of the most tightly populated country in the world, ranking the 36th placing. Earthquakes are very common in Japan. In fact, Japan had suffered more earthquakes compared to other. Therefore, engineers have put in a lot of effort to come up with ideas that enable buildings not to collapse whenever there is an earthquake. Even after spending so much time and even when our technology is so advanced, there are still no solutions for buildings not to collapse from the damage done by earthquake, this has made living in an earthquake area is not safe. In this research, the very main aim is to find out the effect of earthquake on buildings in Japan and as for the objectives, I would like to find out is Japan’s building a safe place to live in due to the earthquake, what are the techniques used for buildings in Japan to avoid structural damage from the earthquake, are there any building codes for Japan because of the earthquake and what are the technologies used specially for the earthquake. In this research, I will be using quantitative research as the main methods for examples questionnaire, experiments, and secondary materials and statistics.
