Article
Residential building stock in Iran, with its diverse types, is exposed to different earthquake events each year that necessities the implementation of disaster risk reduction measures. Conducting seismic risk assessment studies, on the other hand, is crucial as one of the main perquisites of any earthquake disaster risk reduction efforts. Seismic r...

Iran has been, throughout its history, exposed to devastating natural hazards with geophysical or hydro-meteorological origins. Of the most important perils that have affected the country over the past decades, earthquakes, floods, droughts, storms of all kinds, landslides, land subsidence, and wildfire could be distinguished. To respond to and enh...

This paper outlines an optimisation model for land use planning which could be used by public officials and other stakeholders to prepare a risk-sensitive development plan fulfilling standard regulations of urban planning with an emphasis on earthquake protection. The presented model is based on a mixed integer quadratic programming method that pro...
Article
Full-text available
Iran is located in one of the most seismically active regions of the world. This high seismicity combined with densely populated regions has led to several destructive earthquakes in the past, such as the M7.4 Tabas (1978), M7.4 Manjil–Rudbar (1990), or the M6.6 Bam (2003). Seismic hazard and risk assessment can provide critical information to deci...
Article
Risk reduction as an outcome only takes place if results of risk estimation studies are used to develop action plans for risk-management and risk-reduction strategies. This paper describes an automated model that uses the output of existing earthquake loss estimation methodologies to support decision makers in evaluating a set of competing seismic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In recent decades, the agglomeration of population and investment had made the cities more and more vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters. Along with conventional risk reduction, alternatives like retrofitting vulnerable buildings, enforcing construction codes, supervising the construction process, and increasing the public awareness to eart...
Article
This paper presents the results of the vulnerability evaluation in an existing urban area in district 17 of Tehran for the potential earthquake. The main emphasis of the paper is on the issues related to the disaster management and its relation with urban elements (form and pattern) of the specified area. Factors such as urban infrastructure distri...
