Structural shear walls will be tested in the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory to understand the benefits of an earthquake retrofit technique.
Structural shear walls will be tested in the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory to understand the benefits of an earthquake retrofit technique. This opportunity is for students who are interested in gaining experience in experimental methods in structural engineering: with instrumentation, testing and data analysis. The undergraduate student will work on a subset of data from this testing.
The specific outcomes of this project will be identified by the faculty mentor at the beginning of your collaboration.
