But it’s a huge field and entertaining to explore the nature of the planet that has our lives, so what are these vibrations and what is the source of it? As our homeland, Palestine, is exposed to earthquakes, we will in certain way describe the power of these earthquakes in our land, then we must work to find solutions to this problem and implement it. The question here is what are these solutions and what is the earthquake-resistant design? And so, we will talk about the best solutions in terms of time, cost and resistance to earthquakes of course. The existing engineers ignore the seismic design. This is where we should stand to correct and modify the design method to challenge these horizontal forces. So, we can summarize it by saying that: The purpose of seismic engineering is not limited to knowledge of the place where damaging earthquakes occur, but the appointment of the nature of the generated ground movements because of earthquakes and the type of distortion on the upper layers of the earth's crust then we can lay the foundations for specific appropriate designs and at the lowest possible
