"We have low probability, high consequence events in those parts of the countries, so the performance of reinforced masonry structures in earthquakes is very important," Shing said.
Shing said these types of structures demonstrated good performance in the 1994 Northridge Earthquake.
The structure being tested has been designed according to the latest building code requirements.
In theory, Shing said, it should perform even better than those built before Northridge.
However, neither current nor pre-Northridge designs have been tested in an extraordinarily strong earthquake or with a large scale shake table test like this one.
"The building design code has been changing over the years," Shing said.
