ARCHITECTURE AND EARTHQUAKE RESISTANCE

Taiwan is located in the Pacific Rim earthquake zone, with frequent earthquakes and frequent disasters. The main causes of human casualties and property losses in earthquake disasters are caused by the collapse of building structures. Therefore, structure and earthquake-resistant technology have become indispensable items in the field of civil engineering; however, buildings are where people live and work or outside activities, so building earthquake disaster prevention common sense can be one of the necessary common sense for Taiwan residents. This course introduces the explanations of the causes of earthquakes and earthquake-related terms from the introduction of earth structure and plate drift in the field of earth science, so that students can understand the definitions of related terms in earthquake and earthquake reporting. Learn about the response of different building structures in life, such as reinforced concrete structures, steel skeleton structures, and wooden structures, from the differences in building construction categories and construction details. Through the understanding of the seismic behavior of different types of building plane structure types and different facade structure types and the seismic isolation structure measures of buildings, it is possible to distinguish the seismic resistance and isolation capabilities of different building types of houses in daily life. In the course content of home earthquake resistance, tsunami protection and community evacuation, standard operating procedures for earthquake disaster protection are integrated into daily life. Finally, we discuss the current disaster prevention laws, relevant regulations, and technical specifications and the current implementation situation. This course is a course that spans the fields of science and engineering, social sciences, and management science. The content of the course can cultivate students with an international vision of civic literacy, as well as the ability to think carefully and innovate in life.
