PHUKET: One of Thailand’s leading experts in earthquake-proof building design has offered to conduct computer simulation tests to ensure that major buildings in Phuket do not succumb to the recurring tremors the island has been experiencing since April 16. The news was delivered directly to Phuket Governor Tri Augkaradacha by Assoc Prof Dr Paiboon Panyakapo, who heads the Engineering Institute of Thailand’s earthquake and wind load impact study unit based at the Sripatum University Faculty of Engineering in Bangkok. Dr Paiboon invited Governor Tri to provide the architectural plans of important buildings in Phuket so his team could input the data into a specially created computer program that simulates the stress on structures brought on by earthquakes and strong winds.
