"Earthquake engineering is a field of engineering that focuses on designing and building structures that are less likely to be damaged during earthquakes. In addition to finding new ways to build new structures, earthquake engineering also involves finding ways to make existing buildings stronger. Learn how earthquake engineers come up with ways to build safer structures, and how to protect yourself in case of an earthquake."-- Provided by publisher.
