In the Aftermath of Nepal Earthquake – The Dilemma of Structural Engineer
Look at this picture!
While browsing through internet pages and social media, I came across this picture and it somehow got stuck in my mind. These skeletons were found by two archeologists, David Soren and Noelle Soren in the mid-1980s in a Roman house in Kourion, Cyprus. They are believed to be killed during an earthquake that struck Kourion in 365 AD.The picture includes a family of three, showing a mother cradling an infant in her arms as the father trying to protect them from the falling debris.Being a structural engineer, I felt this picture posing a question to me, what we have achieved in last 2000 years in terms of being resilient to earthquakes?
