UK structural and civil engineers have travelled to Turkey to assist in the investigation of the harm done by the strong earthquake that occurred last month.
They are gathering geological information and performing thorough analyses of the causes of the collapse of so many buildings.
Large stones incorporated into concrete, which reduces the strength of the material, is one example of bad construction that has been exposed through work with their Turkish counterparts.
Yet, some of the destruction was also brought on by the earthquake’s sheer force.
In certain places, the ground displacement was greater than what had been anticipated for structures.
The Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team is also doing detailed examinations into the earthquake in Turkey (EEFIT).
Leading academics and industry specialists make up the panel, which has evaluated significant earthquakes during the past three decades.
