Earthquake Risk Mitigation in Palestine and A Training courses on Seismic Design of buildings in Jenin city

21/03/2015 12:02:00

The Urban Planning and Disaster Risk Reduction Centre (UPDRRC), of An- Najah National University (ANU)/ Earth Sciences and Seismic Engineering Center (ESSEC), conducted a training course  (50 hours) entitled: Fundamentals of seismic analysis and seismic design, in the city of Jenin, with the participation of 45 engineers. The training course was held according to the plan of engineers association/ Al Quds Center for building the capacity of engineers in the field of seismic design and according to the cooperation between (UPDRRC) and the Engineers Association, and to achieve the aims of (SASPARM2-H220 Project), based on the results of Strengthening Palestinian-administrated Areas capabilities for Seismic Risk Mitigation project in Palestine (SASPARM), the most important result is the adoption of the seismic design of buildings by the related Palestinian institution.

The training course covered several subjects, mainly: An Introduction to Seismology (Palestine and its surroundings), the influence of site soil on seismic performance of Buildings, and The mechanism of seismic loads transmission from the soil into structures, architecture and construction form for earthquake-resistant buildings, measurements of vertical forces on structures and the distribution of these elements on structural elements of buildings. The design of structural elements of earthquake-resistant buildings, the assessment of the damages and losses (post disaster assessment), strengthening and seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings. Prof. Jalal Dabeek, Director of the Urban Planning and Disaster Risk Reduction Center at An-Najah University and the Vice President of the National Agency for Disaster Risk Mitigation in Palestine, led the training sessions.
It is noteworthy that the Support Action for Strengthening Palestinian-administrated Areas capabilities for Seismic Risk Mitigation project in Palestine (SASPARM-H2020) is a resumption of (SASPARM-FP7), implemented by An-Najah National University in cooperation with the European Centre for training and research in Earthquake Engineering "EUCENTRE” and the Institute for Advanced Study (IUSS) in Pavia – Italy. The project includes a number of activities, including: training courses in the field of seismic design for buildings for engineers from engineering offices, workshops with ministries and government institutions and non-governmental organizations, public awareness campaigns for citizens and students, scientific publications, exchange of visits, etc
