Seismic Risk Analysis for Critical Structural Systems: The Case Study of a Medical Center and its Supporting Systems in Yangon, Myanmar and Metro Manila, Philippines

Program: Collaborative Research for Common Regional Issues (CRC) Field: Civil Engineering Principal Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Khin Aye Mon Sending University: Yangon Technological University (YTU) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Junji KIYONO Japanese University: Kyoto University Year: 2016 Abstract: Major cities in Myanmar and the Philippines are located near fault lines which might move when an accumulated ground strain exceeds the critical level. Once a fault line moves, it can produce ground motions such as large strains and permanent ground deformations. [...]

Development of Hybrid System for Aramid Fiber Reinforced Concrete Exposed to Marine Environment

Program: Collaborative Research with Industry (CRI) Field: Civil Engineering Principal Investigator: Dr. Ganchai Tanapornraweekit Sending University: Thammasat University (TU) Japanese Co-Investigator: Assoc.
