Earthquake engineers shift focus to ensure structural safety

An award-winning team of researchers at the University of Arizona and partnering universities is working to develop buildings that will not collapse under the force of major earthquakes. The UA-led team is turning its attention from vertical to horizontal transfer of forces by examining a less-explored, but critically important, piece of the seismic puzzle — steel collectors.

Study identifies California cliffs at risk of collapse
