Abstract

By doing research, solutions were found and recommendations were made that could be used in Tehran to prepare the people and the city in case of an earthquake. Hiring inspectors from the city's engineers, establishing a new flooding control system, and educating people were some of the solutions that would be useful in Tehran. Knowledge and experience of different earthquakes in other countries were used and summarized throughout the course of this IQP.
