This 2017 lecture by the Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) presents the mission findings on the 2016 Italy earthquake sequence, including:
Read the EEFIT report on the 2016 Italy earthquake sequence.
Discussing how enhancing preparedness for East African countries through seismic resilience engineering can mitigate the effect of earthquakes.
EEFIT returned to Nepal following the devastating Mw 7.8 earthquake which struck Gorkha, Nepal on 25 April 2015. This talk discusses the recovery, reconstruction and “build back better” approach, analysing both the physical reconstruction and the institutional framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
How did engineers combine field and remote earthquake mission strategies to assess the damage?
