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.
