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. [...]

Origin, Ore Genesis, Deposit Modelling of the Orogenic Gold Deposit, Shwegyin Gold District, Bago Region, Myanmar

Program: Collaborative Research with Industry (CRI) Field: Geological and Geo-Resource Engineering Principal Investigator: Dr. MAY THWE AYE Sending University: University of Yangon (UY) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Koichiro WATANABE Japanese University: Kyushu University Year: 2015 Abstract: The researched area, Shwegyin gold district, is about 120 km NE of Yangon. It lies in the central granitoid belt (orogenic Belt) and within the southwestern part of Mogok Metamorphic Belt (MMB) in southern Myanmar. The gold and associated mineralization from Shwegyin area is [...]

Seismic Microzonation of Mandalay City through 1D Seismic Response Analysis by Equivalent Linear Method Based on Borehole Survey and Microtremore Survey in Myanmar

Program: Collaborative Research for Common Regional Issues (CRC) Field: Geological and Geo-Resource Engineering Principal Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tun Naing Sending University: University of Yangon (UY) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Hiroshi KAWASE Japanese University: Kyoto University Year: 2014 Abstract: Myanmar is an earthquake-prone country like other countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and so on in ASEAN. The proposed research area, Mandalay, is one of the most populated and socio-economically important cities in Myanmar. It is located in high seismic prone [...]

Development of the seismic microzonation maps of Yangon City based on both the probabilistic approach together with field investigation

Program: Collaborative Research for Common Regional Issues (CRC) Field: Natural Disaster Principal Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Myo Thant Sending University: University of Yangon (UY) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Hiroshi KAWASE Japanese University: Kyoto University Year: 2013 Abstract: The probabilistic seismic hazard assessment is carried out for Yangon City, Yangon Region, Myanmar, since Yangon is the most populated and major city of Myanmar. It is also the acient city of Myanmar. We used the classical method of Cornell (1976), probabilistic seismic [...]
