NEES researcher and soft-story expert John van de Lindt discusses earthquake vulnerability of certain low-rise, wood-frame buildings. #earthquake  engineering #ucsandiego   #coloradostateuniversity  
Tests of a wood-frame building using an outdoor shake table at the University of California, San Diego, explain the collapse behavior and seismic safety of low-rise, wood-frame buildings. Many have a weak garage-level "soft story."

NEES researcher Claudia Marin and students from Howard University are shaking up computer servers at the NEES at Buffalo lab. Servers donated by @YahooLabs.
By Don McGillen Have you ever wondered what happens to computer servers if you shake them really hard? The loss of functionality of data and telecommunication centers could have a disastrous impact on emergency operations and in the ability of communities to respond and recover when an earthquake hits. That’s why Howard University Associate Professor Claudia Marin-Artieda thinks about it all the time. In fact Dr. Marin-Artieda, who works in Ho...
