i was there in class during Dr. Yoshida (the MPS topic) and Dr. Koike (Lifeline Earthquake Eng'g) lectures @ Dr. L Garciano's Structural Dynamics class.
they're both enthusiastic to encourage Filipino graduate students like us to pursue research projects applicable/observable in our country.
As a sidelight, Dr. Koike worked here in Manila from 1981-1984 when the LRT-1 was still a construction in progress. Dr. Koike was a project engineer of a pipeline system from Intramuros downto Pasay City. He told me during our class dinner @ Atmosphere resto, that the metro rail needs a reliability study for it's turning 30 yrs. this idea was also concurred by Dr. L Garciano. thus, an abstract paper is now in progress by the three of us. GOD HELP US. :)
