NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR SEISMIC RESISTANT CONSTRUCTION (Short Title: Seismic Resistant Building, Project Code Number: SfP-982167) is multinational NATO-sponsored research project aimed to develop a new effective technology of seismic-resistant construction. There has also been a considerable national contribution to the Project by the Scientific Research Institute for Prognosis and Studying of Earthquakes (SRIPSE).

The main idea behind the Project has been to develop and introduce a simple and affordable technique of designing and building brick houses as well as walls and other structures to prevent them from collapsing during high magnitude earthquakes and strong explosions of various nature, minimizing thereby the number of victims, with the ultimate goal to secure seismic safety of people all over the world, especially in least developed countries.

The Project’s objectives are in line with NATO policy for providing people’s security and reducing human victims and damage caused by earthquakes and terrorist acts.

The technology developed on the basis of NATO SfP-982167 Project has its name commercially patented as “DANCING BUILDINGS TECHNOLOGY” shortened to DBT with the reference to the fact that during strong earthquakes, those buildings are distorted rather than destroyed and the deformations resemble dancing movements.
