University of Washington engineers develop 'breakaway' tsunami-resistant buildings

from GeekWire

Engineers at the University of Washington are developing a first-of-its-kind building that can withstand powerful waves from tsunamis. The tsunami-resistant buildings will have “breakaway” walls on lower floors that actually strengthen the structure when removed by strong waves. The buildings are designed to remain intact in a tsunami, protecting people seeking shelter on higher floors. more
