Maestro of the engineering world

The work of Civil Engineering Professor Ian Buckle has made bridges and other large-scale structures throughout the United States and the world safer.

In the highly competitive world of the seismic performance of large-scale structures, few researchers in the world carry with them a greater reputation for results and success than Buckle. He has been a driving force in the recent completion of an $18.7 million expansion of the University's Large-Scale Structures Lab, which is now the largest and most versatile earthquake simulation lab in the U.S.

Find out how Dr. Buckle is leading the nation's most prominent earthquake engineering group:
