Virtual Networking: 4 – 4:30 pm
Zoom Info Below
Reno is home to the nation’s most versatile earthquake engineering facility, operated by the University of Nevada Reno’s Center for Civil Engineering and Earthquake Research. Housing two high-bay labs containing five shake tables, these local facilities are leading the way in the way in earthquake and structural research.
Join us as we delve into the innerworkings of these fascinating and innovative facilities and learn about the ways in which these earthquake explorations play a vital role in keeping our buildings and bridges safe.
Professor David McCallen, Director of the Center for Civil Engineering Earthquake Research will teach us about:
- A 9,600 square-foot high-bay laboratory complete with tie-down strong floor and $15 million worth of shake tables relocated from the Large-Scale Structures Lab
- One of the world’s largest laminar soil boxes and its dedicated shake table – with a capacity of more than 500 tons
- Advance earthquake computer simulations
- Intelligent infrastructure initiative
There is so much to learn about the unique facilities located at our very own University of Nevada, Reno. With over thirty years of experience coupled with world-class labs and equipment, The Center for Civil Engineering and Earthquake Research is revered at the intersection of engineering and technology earthquake research.
