The 4th China seismic building course has started from 5th June in the Building Research Institute. 18 structural engineers selected from various areas in China attend the training course.
This course is planned as a part of JICA project, "Human Resource Development Project for Seismic Engineering and Construction of Buildings" started after the 2008 Great Sichuan Earthquake.
Besides the lectures on seismic design, evaluation and retrofit, study trip to disaster site of the Great East Japan Earthquake is scheduled.
