PUC workshop groupThe EERI Student Chapter of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile hosted a successful two-day training workshop in November empowering students and professionals to share and collect data after an earthquake. At the workshop presentations were made by local Chilean professors and a special international guest, Eduardo Miranda (M.EERI,1987), professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University. A variety of topics were presented emphasizing the performance and types of failures of different construction materials (timber, confined masonry, steel, and concrete) after an earthquake, and the criterion to determine and evaluate risks of collapse of buildings and bridges, and subsequent evacuations. Chloe García (M.EERI,2016), vice president of the student chapter, organized the event with the support of the chapter and university, supporting EERI’s mission to reduce earthquake risk.

EERI can help members be prepared to actively engage in reconnaissance efforts after an earthquake in their area. Any student or regional chapter representatives who are interested in hosting a local workshop should contact Maggie Ortiz-Millan (M.EERI,2012) at This email address is being protected from spambots.
