India records high risk of seismic activities. Whatâ€™s even more frightening is that about 54% of India land mass is earthquake prone.*
To make structures earthquake resistant there should be:
- Minimum specified lateral strength
- Adequate lateral rigidity
- Good ductility – to deform & absorb energy
- Good seismic structural configuration
TopTech TMT Bars undergo several studies to evaluate its performance during an earthquake.
The tests are conducted on concrete beam column joints with repeated reverse loading and large deformation, a real life earthquake scenario alike. Uniform energy dissipation for each cycle indicates high ductility and superior seismic resistant properties for TopTech TMT Bars. This is essential for minimizing structural damages and human casualties
