Great Japanese Engeneering!
a fine example of our earthquake proof buildings in action.
Great engineering and workmanship. So much has been shown about what went wrong and not enough about what worked right.
If it wasn't for exceptional engineering my girlfriend's two shops (which I'm now closing) would be under a pile of rubble. Hats off to the Japanese engineers. They're used to earthquakes but this one was off everyone's design limits.
Tokyo still stands relatively unscathed. Everything north of it varies from questionable to a total disaster.

Have you read the multitude of replies to your ID yet or haven't you figured out how to read them yet since you've contributed nothing to this site?
Incredible engineering but I wonder what kind of unseen damage is done, to the base structure, and if they fail during the next big quake as a result.
The buildings will be inspected, and there will probably be some damage to the concrete parts of the structure. Engineering research has helped us identify how buildings are damaged in quakes so they will have a good idea what to look for. Repair is probably likely.
I would feel somewhat uneasy if I was on the top floors....there is air sickness, sea sickness and...building sickness....
Remember this people, rigid structures crumble under pressure while flexible structures survive.
I was thinking more in terms of people, as a lesson of life.
Those people laughing really have a lot of confidence.
the best engeneering in the world. Thats why they build everywhere in the world.
I REALLY DON'T THINK THAT I COULD WITHSTAND THAT..MENTALLY...
that is impressive.
some engineers must be very proud
I think every structural and industrial engineer worldwide would be proud how well those high-rise buildings in Japan fared. The rest of us are just in awe.
you should have this playing in the background:
It's interesting to compare this with Russian engineering. North of Japan, with just as many earthquakes, is Kamchatka, Russia. They build no building more than five stories high, and the walls are over one foot thick reinforced concrete. There is no flexibility, but the buildings don't collapse either.
they're five stories tall.
