National Center for Research on
Earthquake Engineering (NCREE)
The National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering (NCREE) was officially established in 1990 through a joint effort of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST)(opens a new window) and the National Taiwan University (NTU)(opens a new window).
NCREE became a non-profit organization under the supervision of the National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs)(opens a new window) in 2003. NCREE currently operates two Laboratories (Tapiei and Tainan) and is able to conduct long-stroke high-velocity shaking table tests and cyclic quasi-static tests under extreme high axial loads.
Letter of Agreement
NCREE and NHERI signed a letter of agreement in August 2017 during a tour by NHERI representatives of the NCREE Tainan facility.
Introduction to NCREE
The mission of NCREE includes the promotion of international research on earthquake hazard mitigation and emergency responses to pre-quake preparation and post-quake recovery. Learn more about the capabilities of NCREE facilities and the scope of testing performed:
NCREE completed construction on a high-speed long-stroke shaking table system in Tainan in August 2017.
