Sophisticated Earthquake Risk Evaluation (Hanshin Consultants)

This chair was established by a donation from the private corporation for geophysical exploration and risk evaluation. By considering both the dynamic rupture of a fault and complicated ampli cation of sediments, a sophisticated method for strong motion prediction will be proposed, validity of which will be proved through reproducing seismic disasters in the past.
