Scope and content

English transcription: International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering. In an effort to alleviate the destructive effects of earthquakes, the United Nations Development Programme, with UNESCO acting as executing Agency, is assisting the Japanese Government in the expansion of the International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering. The purpose of this project is to further develop the training programme for specialists as well as the advisory services offered to developing countries located in the seismic zones of the world. nIn order to test a structural design theory, tests are made on actual housing structures in the Large Size Structures Testing Laboratory. Quasi-static seismic forces are created by means of these bilaterally operative oil jacks.
French transcription: L'Institut National de Sismologie et de Génie Parasismique. Afin de lutter plus efficacement contre les effets des tremblements de terre, le Programme des Nations Unies pour le Développement - dont l'UNESCO est l'agent d'exécution - a conclu un accord avec le Gouvernement japonais pour l'expansion de l'Institut International de Sismologie et de Génie parasismique. Le but de ce projet est de développer le programme de formation de spécialistes en sismologie et de fournir l'assistance technique nécessaire aux pays en voie de développement situés dans les zones sismiques de notre globe. Un vaste laboratoire d’essai permet d'expérimenter des nouvelles conceptions architecturales. Ce double cric est destiné à reproduire les effets provoqués par les mouvements sismiques.
