Answer to: Why Timer is good in Earthquake Prone regions
Because timber has got the elasticity which can resist the vibratory motion caused by the earthquake waves. Due to the similar property, tensile strength, steel is used in concrete to make it reinforced concrete and increase its strength thus...
In earthquake prone areas, buildings are subjected to intense forces in all directions and traditional concrete buildings are stiff and rigid, so can not stand the all-directional forces (concrete is strong in compression only)
