National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering (NCREE; Chinese: 國家地震工程研究中心) is an organisation found in Taipei, Taiwan is located on the ridge of the Eurasian and Philippine tectonic plates, it is highly biggest earthquake in Taiwan in more than a century was 21 September , also known as the Chi-Chi earthquake which measured on the Director: Chang, Kuo-Chun (張國鎮). Earthquake engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering that designs and analyzes structures, such as buildings and bridges, with earthquakes in mind. Its overall goal is to make such structures more resistant to earthquakes. An earthquake (or seismic) engineer aims to construct structures that will not be damaged in minor shaking and will avoid serious damage or collapse in a. In this study, a new horizontal ground-motion model is developed for crustal and subduction earthquakes in Taiwan. A novel two-step maximum-likelihood method is used as a regression tool to. According to the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), no state is immune from earthquake hazards, and at least 44 are at risk of moderate or major seismic activity. With large concentrations of population, structures, and infrastructure in vulnerable urban centers across the U.S., the consequences from a damaging earthquake.

In this volume, top seismic experts and researchers from Europe and around the world, including the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) in the USA, present the most recent outcome of their work in experimental testing, as well as the results of the transnational access activities of external researchers who have used Europe's seven largest and most.

The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is a leading technical society in dissemination of earthquake risk and earthquake engineering research both in the U.S. and globally. EERI members include researchers, geologists, geotechnical engineers, educators, government officials, and building code regulators. Their mission, as stated in their 5-year plan published in , has three Parent agency: US Coast and Geodetic Survey. The NEES facility is a key node in a nationwide earthquake-engineering "collaboratory"—a network of 15 state-of-the-art laboratories that will allow earthquake engineers and students at different institutions to share resources, collaborate on testing and exploit new computational technologies. The Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics Unit (NESDE) is integrated in LNEC´s Structures Department (DE) dedicated to R&D&I activities in several fields related either with Earthquake Engineering either with Wind Engineering. The studies in Earthquake Engineering and Wind Engineering began in Portugal and in the LNEC in the mid 50's of last century.
