Oreta presents paper at PCEE 2011, NZ

With Bruce Deam of PCEE2011

Dr. Andres Oreta presented his paper, "AIJ-Level 1 Seismic Screening of Some Reinforced Concrete Buildings Damaged by the 1990 Luzon Earthquake" at the 9th Pacific Conference on Earthquake Engineering (PCEE 2011) held on April 14-16, 2011 at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The study aims to determine the range of values of the basic structural performance index (BSPI) of damaged low rise RC buildings to guide decision makers in prioritizing existing buildings inspected using the AIJ Level 1 procedure for further detailed seismic inspection and retrofitting.

The conference with the theme "Building an Earthquake Resilient Soceity" was organized and hosted by the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering.
With Auckland University Prof. Rolly Orense and UPD Prof. Jun Ignacio
