Daily life / Emergency dual use of space Proposal by the author Self-sustainability: Another important problem of the current safety areas is their lack of hygienic services and shelter, in most cases they are just open spaces without any type of program. Following the latest government guidelines, MINVU, ONEMI (2017), the vertical evacuation structures should provide the citizens with the minimum comfort, hygiene and shelter needed for at least the first 12 hours, this should also consider energetic and sanitary self-sufficiency with the use of renewable resources Punctual small scale interventions: As previously stated, the city of Iquique has not been affected by tsunami events in recent decades, as such, it's a fully functional city and this makes it difficult to make large scale interventions, due to the lack of space. To face this problem the vertical evacuation devices should maintain a controlled and minimum scale, to work in between small open spaces as a sort of urban acupuncture intervention.

Chile has a long history of earthquakes and tsunamis and as a result the country has developed a strict regulation system that allow for an adequate response in case of earthquakes. On the other hand, the responses to tsunami events are still in development, especially after the 2010 earthquake and tsunami. The city of Iquique, that suffered an ear...

Large earthquakes and tsunamis can damage or lead to the collapse of lifeline bridges, resulting in human and socioeconomic losses as well as prolonged recovery times. Although many simulation models are available for the individual effects of earthquake and tsunami hazards on bridges, there are limited modeling approaches for predicting damage fro...

Are analyzed the catastrophic seismic events near Chilean coast and generated by them tsunami 1 April 2014 to north of Iquique with magnitude 8.2. It is noted that event occurred 1 April 2014 was in fact predicted in work (Mazova and Ramirez 1999), in which there were analyzed all strongest Chilean tsunamigenic earthquakes with sources near the Chi...

A dense cabled observation network, called the seafloor observation network for earthquakes and tsunami along the Japan Trench (S-net), was installed in Japan. This study aimed to develop a near-real time tsunami source estimation technique using the ocean bottom pressure data observed at those sensors in S-net. Synthetic pressure waveforms at thos...
