Seismic resistant schools in Nepal


The annual presentation from the 2016 Pai Lin Li Travel Award winner, Jacob Borchers.

The lecture, given during the 2017 Young Researchers Conference on 10 July 2017, explores how engineers overcame the problems between design and implementation of seismic resistant schools in rural Nepal.
 
Jacob travelled to Sunkhani, Nepal, during university as part of a project to design and build a new school. Tragically, the village was the epicentre of a 7.3 magnitude earthquake and was destroyed. The school built by the project survived unscathed, and was used as an emergency centre.
