NSF creates CONVERGE center to augment natural hazards research
To enhance the diversity of research underway in natural hazards, the National Science Foundation (NSF) created CONVERGE, a $3 million research center at the University of Colorado Boulder. The center is a resource for the 11-member, NSF-funded Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure
NHERI SimCenter and UC San Diego implement hybrid simulation shake table tests
Hybrid simulations involving experimental substructures on the largest shake table in the U.S. were successfully completed through the collaborative effort of hybrid simulation experts from the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) SimCenter and UC San Diego Experimental Facility. These tests were executed during the commissioning of hybrid simulation capabilities at UC San Diego.
NHERI develops roadmap for natural hazards engineering research
Natural hazard engineers now have a roadmap for research. Development of this five-year plan was spearheaded by the NSF-funded Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI), a distributed, multi-user, nation-wide organization that provides the community with state-of-the-art research infrastructure.
