Abstract:
    Change the material composition and shapes of normal bricks for good shear performance under earthquakes. Instead of kilns bricks would be prepared under hydraulic press to avoid environmental issues.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The production of bricks evolve hazardous smoke. Our mechanism is ecofriendly bcz we are using hydraulic system which is not being used in Pak. The material is cheap and the shape will enhance the interlocking and hence better seismic performance.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Especially the people in the Northern areas such as Gilgit and kashmir which are high seismic zones and do not possess much resources can take the benefit
How will the solution works
    Three aspects; material i.e readily available i.e cement, clay and lime. Shape i.e lego shaped lock and key model. Manufacturing system is hydraulic press. The lego system of bricks will ensure perfect interlocking and limitize the use if mortar. The production on hydraulic press will reduce the ajr voids in the brick that would increase the density and hence strength of the brick. And eventually the process is ecofriendly for therr is no fuel usage since the press is electrical.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The general brick manufacturers or the BHATTA MAFIYA. We are not using toxic fuels for our manufacturing of bricks.
