Shaking Up the Knowledge Base

研究ers in the Earthquake Engineering and Structures Laboratory study buildings, 桥梁, power plants and other infrastructure systems to advance safe and stable building practices. The laboratory includes the Shake Table, one of the most powerful earthquake simulators on the East Coast. The Shake Table produces every motion that a building or structure may experience during an earthquake, allowing it to simulate the most severe earthquakes recorded worldwide over the last 100 years.
