Project Details

Description

This project aims at developing a comprehensive scheme for enhancing the seismic safety and resilience of school buildings in Nepal. The circle of resilience initiates from a holistic seismic hazard assessment followed by the development of a smart diagnostics expert system app for reliable pre-earthquake structural inspection leading to the risk-based prioritization of schools that need strengthening.

SAFER is a unique opportunity for an actual and long term impact in the quality of life and expertise of Nepal and a significant contribution to the welfare, education, health and safety of the Nepalese children.
