A GIS-Based Earthquake Damage Prediction in Different Earthquake Models: A Case Study at the University of the Philippines Los Baños, Philippines
June 6, 2018

Former PARR fellow Ibnu Rusydy authored a study of earthquake damage prediction for the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). The UPLB is located in an earthquake-prone region and there are numerous earthquake sources that can possibly cause an earthquake at any magnitude anytime. A study of the earthquake damage prediction in several earthquake magnitude and time scenarios in GIS model analysis has been conducted for the UPLB’s campus. This study aims to produce several scenarios of the earthquake models and an intensity map for UPLB’s campus; to determine the damage ratio of the buildings and its distribution in different earthquake scenarios; and to estimate the casualty in the UPLB’s community; as well as to validate the earthquake model with historical earthquakes in the Philippines.
