When a building collapses, it usually has the same effect as the collapse of a building of the same size.
But, in many cases, the effects are more subtle.
In a new study, researchers have shown that bricks may actually be able to withstand the effects of collapse better than concrete.
The findings, which appear in the journal Science, provide a new explanation for why bricks can withstand the forces of falling rubble and other forces.
In this case, they are showing that they can resist the effects on a structural basis as well.
