The world's largest outdoor earthquake simulator, operated by structural engineers at the University of California San Diego, received a $16.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to upgrade the facility to expand its testing capabilities.
Ram Jack Systems Distribution sponsored a webcast for engineers featuring Amy B. Cerato, Ph.D., P.E., professor at the University of Oklahoma, who shared research findings regarding the seismic effect on helical piles.
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.
