Researcher of Mazandaran Science & Technology University Creates Anti-Seismic Bricks

Saturday, November 25, 2017 - 12:49

An inventor from University of Science and Technology of Mazandaran has created a kind of brick which is resistant to a 10-magnitude earthquake.

According to an ISCA report, Sisbrick is a new class of earthquake-resistant building material that seismically isolates partition walls from the main building structure, significantly reducing the tension between them, thus minimizing the damage incurred.

Mehdi Ranjbar explained that Iran is one of the most seismically active countries in the world, “therefore, producing earthquake-resistant building materials to minimize damages has been placed on my priority.”

Techniques and special bricks to improve the way buildings respond to earthquakes are already available on the market but he added that the shape of these bricks are different from the current ones and they can be fixed together vertically and horizontally. He also explained that the experiments have been reached to the positive results at the laboratory level.

He noted that the bricks are made of clay (30%) and other additives also stated that his only concern is the lack of financial supports.
