Coastal hazards assessment in western Luzon, Philippines using geomorphic features and geospatial techniques

Program: Collaborative Research Program for Alumni (CRA) Field: Natural Disaster Principal Investigator: Asst. Prof. Dr. Noelynna Tuazon Ramos Sending University: University of the Philippines – Diliman (UP) Japanese Co-Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hiroyuki TSUTSUMI Japanese University: Kyoto University Year: 2014 Abstract: We investigated the geomorphology and age of uplifted coral terraces and wave-cut notches along the coastlines of west Luzon, Philippines. These new data not only enable a better understanding of ancient sea levels and seismotectonic processes in the Philippines [...]

Development of Sustainable Solutions to Coal Ash Management in the Asian region

Program: Collaborative Research for Common Regional Issues (CRC) Field: Environmental Engineering Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Michael Angelo B. Promentilla Sending University: De La Salle University (DLSU) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Hirofumi HINODE Japanese University: Tokyo Institute of Technology Year: 2014 Abstract: The research project is about developing ways to use coal ash produced by coal-fired power plant to recover valuable metals through bioleaching, and as raw materials for geopolymer production. Coal ash management is a common regional issues in ASEAN [...]

Synthesis and characterization of novel nanograined lithium cobalt oxyhydroxide as cathode for rechargeable lithiumion batteries

Program: Collaborative Research Program for Alumni (CRA) Field: Materials Engineering Principal Investigator: Asst. Prof. Dr. Rinlee Butch M. Cervera Sending University: University of the Philippines – Diliman (UP) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Dr. Shu YAMAGUCHI Japanese University: The University of Tokyo Year: 2013 Abstract: A new lithium cobalt oxyhydroxide compound has been successfully synthesized. This new compound has been found to be related to the low temperature LiCoO2 (LT-LiCoO2) spinel structure formed at low processing temperatures. With the use of a [...]

Flood hazard assessment and disaster prevention planning of electric power systems in Metro Manila and other interdependent lifelines

Program: Special Research Program for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (SDM) Field: Civil Engineering Principal Investigator: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lessandro Estelito O. Garciano Sending University: De La Salle University (DLSU) Japanese Co-Investigator: Prof. Takeshi KOIKE Japanese University: Kyoto University Year: 2011 Abstract: The power supply system and its network components, like any other lifeline, are at risk due to extreme floods. Although various adaptive measures by the power producer can reduce this risk, the infrastructure (demand side) connected to the substation [...]
