University of Auckland Centre for Earthquake Engineering Research


Overview

The University of Auckland Centre for Earthquake Engineering Research (UACEER) was established in 2007 and acts as a research centre within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The University of Auckland.

The purpose of this centre is to facilitate the coordination of earthquake engineering research projects within the department through a combination of research groups.

The main objectives of UACEER are:

  • Coordinate earthquake engineering research projects within The University of Auckland.
  • Provide a focal point for international collaborations and large-scale international earthquake engineering research.
  • Develop the earthquake engineering research capabilities at The University of Auckland.

Who are we?


The group has diverse expertise to conduct and supervise various research projects related to earthquake engineering. All members are highly qualified in their area of expertise.

What do we do?


A wide range of earthquake engineering research is performed by combining expertise in the structural, geotechnical, seismological, numerical and experimental fields.

This is applied through the use of numerical tools, pseudo dynamic testing, tests to obtain dynamic properties of materials, seismic performance of structural components, joints, whole structures, soil-foundation-structure system, soil-fluid-structure system and national and international collaborations.
