Project

Opportunities for Investigating Precast Concrete System via NEESR Shake Table Tests

Research purpose

This grant is made by CPF to the PCI Foundation in support of the following research project.

A National Science Foundation (NSF) Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEESR) shake table test is planned for this fall at UCSD to demonstrate a new system for anchoring floor systems that limits seismic forces. To benchmark the system, a direct comparison to an equivalent traditional structure is desired during the shake table program. Thus, the testing program will include the investigation of a traditional system, and it is the desire of the research team to test a system of interest to the engineering profession.
