Earthquake and structural engineering

Our world-class research program in earthquake and structural engineering focuses on understanding how key infrastructure stands up to extreme forces such as an earthquake. We simulate earthquake effects on large-scale models and use those results to engineer safer buildings, bridges and roads.
