Abstract (in English)

Chile is one of the most seismic countries in the world where large earthquakes have occurred in the past and surely great earthquakes will occur in the future. The “Norte Chico” is an area of transition from arid to vegetation. It is located between the big Atacama Desert and the Chile’s capital Santiago. There is a large influence of colonial constructions, making adobe block widely used in the vernacular architecture. It is possible to identify a particular culture of adobe construction with seismic technologies which had been proved on the 8.3 Mw earthquake that took place in September 2015.
