UB sets out to study a particular kind of building and its
possible vulnerability to earthquakes.
A story on NBC News reports on a shake test conducted
Feb. 18 at UB’s Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake
Engineering Research that simulated what would happen to New York
City’s turn-of-the-century row houses in the event of a
magnitude 5.8 earthquake similar to the one that occurred in
Virginia in 2011. The story includes a UB video of the test
produced by the UB Center for the Arts.
