Can a German style build brick house survive a tornado?
It depends on how strong tornado is. The house would not stand a chance against an EF4 or EF5 tornado, and would likely be partially destroyed by a high EF3. Anything EF2 or lower would be unlikely to do more than remove the roof.

It depends on the desired size of your house!
It depends on the intensity of the tornado and the specific construction of each house. Both houses would likely survive an EF2 or weaker tornado, though may lose their roofs.… A low to moderate EF3 may destroy the vinyl sided house and leave the brick one standing, but both would be destroyed or irreparably damaged by a high EF3. Neither would survive the full force of an EF4 or EF5 tornado. There have been strange cases, as well. as some tornadoes have their strongest winds confined to small suction vortices. This can sometimes lead to one structure being leveled while the one next to it is left intact, regardless of construction. In a few cases sturdy brick buildings have been demolished while nearby wooden shacks have escaped with minimal damage.
It depends on the scale of the tsunami, the topography, the placement the house, the construction of the house. Even brick houses can be poorly constructed.
Because The Shape Is Wider :] And Because Cubes Are Light If They Were Bricks
Bricks are used in order that the buildings can be sustained for a long time. As well as this they use bricks because they have many useful qualities, for example they are: …· Flexible - can be used to build different designs and shapes. · Non-flammable - wouldn't set on fire easily. · Waterproof - prevents water and dampness from entering the house. · Strong - won't break easily. · Long Lasting - won't need to be replaced to often. · Not too expensive - it would not cost to much to build a decent sized house. · Insulator - will keep most heat in to provide a warm house. · Doesn't conduct electricity - won't provide power but will make it less of a hazard/danger. · Easy to handle - easy to build and to fix. · Durable - won't be damaged easily by most weather except in extreme cases.
Yes. It matters on the strength of a tornado though. It would usually takes at least an EF3 tornado to do this.
Yes, though it would take a very strong tornado to do so.
Yes. An F3 or EF3 tornado will knock down or remove walls from most houses, brick or otherwise. In most cases of F3 damage, though, at least some interior walls remain standin…g.
Yes, it is possible but it would take a very powerful tornado to do so. One of at least EF4 strength if the house isn't well anchored. If it is well anchored it would like…ly require an EF5 tornado. One person managed to capture such an event on video near the town of Elie, Manitoba on June 22, 2007. Despite the tornado's relatively small size it was violent enough to be rated as Canada's only official F5 tornado.
you want to overlap the bricks. with cubes it's not possible to build a nice edge.
Lowe's a good place to buy bricks for house building. They have different kinds of bricks for good prices. Good quality and value for your money should be expected.
Many construcional companies and building experts use bricks during house building. It is very common and old method which are follow by many builders during construction.… /
It is better to say that a brick house is more likely to survive. There are a number of factors at work. A house built of brick is not necessarily better built, as it may …be lacking structural integrity in other areas. In the very strongest tornadoes, no house will survive, no matter how well-built it is. The severity of damage from a tornado can be very selective; F5 damage can occur right next to F1 damage. In some cases tornado may completely destroy one house while leaving a nearby house of similar or even weaker construction with minimal damage.
Yes. The rating of a tornado only refers to the worst damage that it causes. Usually only a small percentage of strucures in an EF5 tornado will actually be struck by EF5 …winds. Many strutures will be hit by winds that are far less powerful but still capable of causing significant damage. In the aftermath of a tornado it is not uncommon to see houses and other buildings with exterior walls, including brick walls, collapsed while the rest of the structure remains mostly intact.
There are a number of factors. One of the major factors is how hard a building is hit. Most tornadoes are technically classified as "weak" with ratings of EF0 and EF1 and …estimated winds of up to 110 mph. While a 110 mph wind can be very damaging, most decently sturdy structures will remain standing. The tornadoes that cause destruction worthy of national headlines account for a small percentage. Even when a tornado is given a higher rating, the intensity only refers to the worst of the damage caused. Buildings not hit by the worst winds are likely to be less heavily damaged. Peak winds inside a tornado can vary greatly over short distances. One house may be impacted by a 250 mph wind, which almost nothing can withstand, while a nearby structure may experience winds of less than 100 mph. Quality of construction is a major factor as well. When it comes to tornadoes, the buildings that are most likely to survive are those that have their parts strongly held together
