Perception of seismic design by architects in Algeria
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this article is to analyse the results of a survey towards the architects and engineers of construction in order to estimate the perception of the anti-seismic protection amongst these professionals. It focuses more on the architects who design buildings and, in many cases, monitor their implementation. The main result is the observation of inadequacies and gaps in seismic culture amongst the professionals, especially architects. These difficulties require the reinforcement of earthquake-resistant training. This effort to upgrade skills is as important as other aspects of the preventive management of the seismic risk in Algeria.

Kunene, N.D. (North-West University, 2018)Seismic events are a reality in many vulnerable communities, and significantly affect people's living conditions. As these events cannot be prevented, basic measures should be taken before they occur and expose households ...
Salmon, Brian P.; Kleynhans, Waldo; Goldswain, Gareth; Lynch, Richard A.; Rebuli, Daryl (SEG, 2019)Rock mass characteristics such as applied stress, pore pressure, and fracture density are coupled to the seismic wave propagation velocity. Therefore, measuring small relative changes of seismic wave velocities in operational ...
