These Scientists Are Altering Soil at a Molecular Stage to Face up to Earthquakes

Engineers usually depend on brute-force strategies to mitigate its results—fortifying constructions with stone columns and grout; banging the bottom with heavy weights. However now, a Portland State College-led workforce of scientists needs to re-engineer soils on the molecular stage to forestall them from ever liquefying within the first place.To take action, they’re enlisting the assistance of soil microbes.“What they're proposing is a really elegant technique ought to it work,” mentioned Yumei Wang, a resilience engineer at Oregon’s Division of Geology and Min…
