Amirkabir University of Technology in cooperation with Japanese government will build a modern shaking table.

According to an ISCA report, the Japanese government would invest $150 mn for earthquake engineering studies in Iran.

Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has begun cooperation with the Iranian Ministry of Science Research and Technology, Tehran Disaster Mitigation and Management Organization (TDMMO) and a number of Iranian universities in the field of disaster risk reduction (DRR) in earthquake, said the chief representative of JICA Iran Office.

Speaking on the sidelines of a seminar titled ‘Seismic Diagnosis Analysis/Study of Structures and Vital Arteries, Yukiharu Kobayashi told Iran Daily that the seminar provided a very good opportunity to share with Iranian academics and government officials, Japan’s experiences in the field of DRR in earthquake.

He said the seminar was organized and held by JICA in cooperation with Amir Kabir University, Iran University of Science and Technology, Sharif University of Technology and Tehran University.

An academic delegation from Japan International Cooperation Agency visited scientific institutions in Tehran including Amirkabir University during the last week to prepare for the project.

The head of Structural and Earthquake Research Center (SERC), Alireza Rahaei also stated that making the table would cost around $20 mn and would take 5 years to complete.

Iran sits on major seismological fault lines, which makes it one of the world's most quake-prone countries.
