Journal of Disaster Research | Year: 2013

This project conducts comprehensive research on earthquake and tsunami disaster mitigation in Peru in the framework of "Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS)," sponsored by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The project focuses on five research fields, i.e., seismic motion and geotechnical, tsunami, buildings, damage assessment, and disaster mitigation planning. Almost three years have passed since the five-year project started in March 2010. During this period, researchers in different fields from Japan and Peru collaborate to achieve the overall objectives of the project. This paper summarizes the research framework and progress of the JST-JICA project on earthquake and tsunami disaster mitigation technology in Peru. Source

Lab on a Chip - Miniaturisation for Chemistry and Biology | Year: 2014

Versatile prototyping of 3D printed lab-on-a-chip devices, supporting different forms of sample delivery, transport, functionalization and readout, is demonstrated with a consumer grade printer, which centralizes all critical fabrication tasks. Devices cost 0.57US$ and are demonstrated in chemical sensing and micromixing examples, which exploit established principles from reference technologies. © 2014 the Partner Organisations. Source

Thin-Walled Structures | Year: 2016

This paper presents a bending and free vibration analysis of functionally graded plates (FGPs) resting on elastic foundation by using an original first shear deformation theory (FSDT). This theory contains only four unknowns, which is even less than the classical FSDT. The elastic foundation follows the Pasternak (two-parameter) mathematical model. The governing equations for the bending and free vibration analysis are obtained through the principle of virtual work and Hamilton's principle, respectively. The original displacement field allows obtaining interesting governing equations. These equations are solved via Navier-type, closed form solutions. The accuracy of the current solution is verified by comparing it with 3D and other closed form solutions available in the literature. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd. Source

Composite Structures | Year: 2014

This paper presents a free vibration analysis of functionally graded plates (FGPs) resting on elastic foundation by using a generalized quasi-3D hybrid type higher-order shear deformation theory (HSDT). The significant feature of this formulation is that it deals with only 5 unknowns as the first order shear deformation theory (FSDT), instead of 6 as in for example the well-known trigonometric plate theory (TPT). The displacement field is modeled combining hyperbolic and sinusoidal shear strain shape functions in which the stretching effect is included. The elastic foundation follows the Pasternak (two-parameter) mathematical model. The governing equations are obtained through the Hamilton's principle. These equations are then solved via Navier-type, closed form solutions. The fundamental frequencies are found by solving the eigenvalue problem. The accuracy of the current solutions can be visualized by comparing it with the 3D and other closed form solutions available in the literature. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. Source

This paper presents a free vibration analysis of functionally graded plates (FGPs) resting on elastic foundation. The displacement field is based on a novel non-polynomial higher order shear deformation theory (HSDT). The elastic foundation follows the Pasternak (two-parameter) mathematical model. The governing equations are obtained through the Hamilton's principle. These equations are then solved via Navier-type, closed form solutions. The fundamental frequencies are found by solving the eigenvalue problem. The degree of precision of the current solution can be noticed by comparing it with the 3D and other closed form solutions available in the literature. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
