Port-Au-Prince, Haiti

Status: Complete

Haiti is one of the most impoverished nations in the world and highly susceptible to strong ground motion as evidesnced by the January 12, 2010 Port-au-Prince earthquake, which led to catastrophic loss of life. Today, Haiti remains at risk of future seismic events. As a result of this project Haiti will be more self-sufficient with respect seismic site response analysis and earthquake design.
